Attention All Maryland Homeowners: Homestead Tax Credit Application Deadline 12/31/2012

 Attention All Maryland Homeowners:

Homestead Tax Credit Application Deadline 12/31/2012

The Department of Assessments and Taxation wants to provide an important reminder to all homeowners that they only have until December 31, 2012 to file the Application for Homestead Tax Credit Eligibility to continue to be qualified for this property tax credit that limits the amount of assessment on which a homeowner actually pays taxes on his or her principal residence.

                         Maryland Assessment

Over the past five years, the Department has mailed the Homestead application on two separate occasions to every homeowner in the State either in their new Assessment Notice or by a separate mailing.  To find out if you have already filed the one-time application in the past five years, you should go the Department’s website at www.dat.state.md.us  and click on "Real Property Data Search" You will click on the County name where your property is located and enter the Street address. A page on your property will be displayed, and you look across the bottom of the page to see if you submitted the Homestead application. If you have not submitted the application, the form will be mailed to you if you send an e-mail to credit@dat.state.md.us   

This credit is designed to protect you from annual spikes in tax bills.
