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 I can't recommend the Mr. Waterfront Team highly enough.

We took their wise counsel at every turn and the result was our house getting SOLD. Loved their attention to detail and the beautiful photography and videos.
