The deadline to apply and continue to receive the Homestead Tax Credit is December 31, 2012. This is a one-time application that needs to be filled out to establish your eligibility.
To curb potential abuses or fraud, a 2007 law requires Marylanders who want to claim a tax credit for their owner-occupied residential property taxes to apply to the State Department of Assessment and Taxation by December 31, 2012. In the most recent Legislative Session we passed a new law establishing penalties including repayment for those who receive the credit but are subsequently found not qualified, a 25% penalty for willful misrepresentation of the facts, and a lien on the property until payment or foreclosure.
To check if you application is already on file with the Department of Assessment and Taxation go to the Real Estate Database (, select Prince George’s County, enter your address, and scroll to the bottom of the loaded report.
The Department of Assessment and Taxation also sent out reminder notices over the last two months with your Account number and Access code. You can use this information to submit your application online at
