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 has handled two transactions for us. Both had lots of complications but the Mr. Waterfront Team handled these situations perfectly and both deals closed on time. Their video on our home was very professional and made the sale happen. We are also glad that we took the Mr. Waterfront Team's pricing advice - he got us about $150k more than we would have listed the house for, in a very tough market. We would work with the Mr. Waterfront Team again in a heartbeat! Dave F, Mill Creek Drive, Arnold read more...
