Homeowners’, Renters’, or Homestead Tax Credit

 

 

Letterhead

April 14, 2020

The Maryland Department of Assessments and Taxation is urging Marylanders to consider whether they may be eligible to apply for a Homeowners’Renters’, or Homestead Tax Credit and to submit those applications online. Although processing times for all applications will be delayed for the remainder of the COVID-19 State of Emergency, our secure and convenient online services make it significantly easier to track and process applications submitted online.

The Department’s Tax Credits Public Counter in Baltimore remains closed until further notice to protect the safety of our customers and staff during this health emergency.

Homeowners’ and Renters’ Tax Credit

To apply for a Homeowners’ or Renters’ Tax Credit, please visit the OneStop portal at http://www.taxcredits.sdat.maryland.gov. Applicants will be able to complete and submit their application, as well as upload all supporting documentation. Please note that there are extended processing times and that we are unable to determine individuals’ eligibility for a tax credit until the July 2020 property tax rates are set by the counties.

The Homeowners’ Property Tax Credit Program provides tax relief for eligible homeowners by setting a limit on the amount of property taxes owed based on their income. If a resident has already paid their property taxes and applies before October 1, any tax credit that the homeowner may be eligible for will be refunded by their county finance office. The Renters’ Property Tax Credit Program provides tax relief for eligible renters who pay high monthly rent relative to their total income. This credit is issued in the form of a direct check payment of up to $1,000 a year.

Homestead Tax Credit

To submit an application for a Homestead tax credit, please apply online at https://sdathtc.dat.maryland.gov/The Homestead Tax Credit limits the increase in taxable assessments for a principal resident to a fixed percentage each year. Therefore, if approved for the credit in 2020, many homeowners’ will not start receiving the credit until their property is triennially reassessed.
