County Executive Leopold Reminds Citizens of Last Chance to Apply for Property Tax Credit
Deadline is December 31st
Annapolis (December 24, 2012) - County Executive John R. Leopold today reminded citizens to make sure they are signed up for an important property tax credit that could save hundreds or thousands of dollars.
If you are approved, there is nothing you need to do. If you are not approved, you can apply online by going to https://sdathtc.resiusa.org/homestead/. Be sure to have a copy of your most recent assessment notice handy to fill out your information.
The Homestead Tax Credit protects homeowners from sudden and sometimes dramatic increases in property tax bills from reassessments. Once a homeowner is eligible for the credit, his or her property tax can increase by no more than 2 percent in a given tax year.
The deadline to apply is December 31, 2012. There is no way to appeal your bill once the deadline has passed.
