The deadline to apply for Maryland’s Homestead Tax Credit is December 31st. The credit caps the amount your residential property taxes can increase after an assessment. In 2007, the General Assembly required a new application and set the end of 2012 as the deadline. To keep getting the credit, you must have filed an application since 2007. Tens of thousands of homeowners who used to get the credit have not yet applied; that’s why jurisdictions across the state are reminding their residents to beat the upcoming deadline.
Mike Griffin, an Associate Director in the Maryland Department of Assessments and Taxation, joins Sheilah to talk about the credit. He oversees the Homestead Tax Credit division.

Note: The above text has been edited to clarify that if you haven't applied for the credit since 2007, you will need to apply to keep receiving the Homestead Tax Credit. Otherwise, you will no longer receive the credit after the December 31st deadline. Again, you can check whether you've applied for the Homestead Tax Credit here.
