A change in state law now requires homeowners to apply to get their Homeowners Tax Credit, instead of receiving it automatically. The application form is enclosed in your Maryland property tax assessment notice mailed this month. To be eligible, your home must be your primary residence in which you resided at least six (6) months of the year including July 1 of the year for which the credit is applicable. This is a ONE-TIME application, but it must be
filed by April 1, 2008.
To file electronically, go to: http://www.dat.state.md.us/.
Look on left side of the website under property owners for additional information.
