The Maryland Homeowners’ Property Tax Credit filing deadline is September 1, 2018.

There are two deadlines each year – May 1 to have it potentially reflected on your initial July tax bill, and September 1 for a final deadline for each year.

This credit must be applied for each and every year!

What is the Maryland Homeowners’ Property Tax Credit?

According to the Maryland Department of Assessments and Taxation:

The State of Maryland has developed a program which allows credits against the homeowner’s property tax bill if the property taxes exceed a fixed percentage of the person’s gross income. In other words, it sets a limit on the amount of property taxes any homeowner must pay based upon his or her income.

This tax credit is dependent on your total gross personal income before deductions in relation to the taxes you pay on your property. The combined total gross income for the household is currently a maximum of $60,000.

Maryland has a number of tax credits potentially available to homeowners. Consult a Maryland tax attorney to find out for what you may potentially qualify!
