Just 8 more days to apply for the Maryland Homestead Tax Credit.

maryland tax creditIf you reside in Maryland you will want to make sure that you have applied for the homestead credit.  To prevent improper granting of this credit on rented or multiple properties of a single owner, a new law was enacted in 2007 that requires all homeowners to submit a one-time application to establish eligibility for the credit.   Before 2007, Homeowners were automatically registered to receive the credit but that is no longer the case. Homeowners who have not filed a Homestead Eligibility Application have until have until December 31, 2012 to submit an application to continue being eligible for this credit. You can find out if you have already filed the Homestead application by looking up your property on the information on filing status.

Here is the link to see if you have it.  Pick your county and then put in your address.  Look at the very bottom of the tax record that comes up to see if you have the CREDIT.  

What the Homestead Tax Credit?

The Homestead Tax Credit was established to help homeowners deal with large assessment increases on their principal residence.  State law established the credit to limit the increase in taxable assessments each year to a fixed percentage. Every county and municipality in Maryland is required to limit taxable assessment increases to 10% or less each year

If you need more information about the tax credit, check out the MD Homestead Tax Credit site.
