Low-Income and Senior Homeowners can Apply for Property Tax Credit
Montgomery County homeowners who have a limited income or are at least 70 years of age may be eligible for property tax credits that will limit the amount of taxes they must pay.
One application will determine eligibility for three programs – the Maryland Homeowners’ Property Tax Credit Program; the Montgomery County Supplemental Property Tax Credit; and the Montgomery County Senior Property Tax Credit. The application deadline is September 1.
Property owners who have applied for a tax credit previously and been denied are encouraged to apply again, since the tax credit programs have changed and been improved over the years and income situations may have changed.
To apply for the tax credits, homeowners must fill out one application form each year. The forms are available by calling the Maryland State Department of Assessments and Taxation (SDAT) at 1-800-944-7403 or by downloading the form and instructions from the SDAT website at http://www.dat.state.md.us/sdatweb/htc.html.
