What is the “Homestead Tax Credit”?

Maryland tries to protect long-term, primary homeowners from being “taxed out of their houses,” so the state caps the amount that taxes can increase on a primary residence each year. When the house is sold, the tax bill is reset to account for the current assessment of the property. Then, after a year, the new owner is eligible for the Homestead Credit to keep his/her taxes from significant increases – assuming, of course, it is a primary residence. The Homestead credit is not automatic; it requires an application.

Testimonials The Mr. Waterfront team did a masterful job at finding me a beautiful property, while also selling my existing home. I took a chance in purchasing a new home before selling my old home. The Mr. Waterfront team really came through for me in bringing my property under contract in 3 months for a great price. I couldn't have been more pleased with the Waterfront team's knowledge of everything "waterfront-related" and the professionalism exhibited throughout the purchasing and selling processes. I would strongly recommend the Mr. Waterfront team to anyone interested in buying or selling waterfront properties in the area. Dan O, Shore Drive, Annapolis read more...
