ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WDVM) — If you’re a homeowner or renters in Maryland, Gov. Larry Hogan announced an extension to property tax credit deadlines.
“This is yet another step our administration is taking to ensure more of our citizens can remain safe and secure in their homes,” said Governor Hogan in a press release Monday. “Tens of thousands of Marylanders who have not yet applied may still be eligible for these tax credits, and now have an additional month to apply for this much-needed relief.”
The Homeowners’ Property Tax Credit Program provides relief for eligible homeowners by setting a limit on the amount of property taxes owed based on their income.
Applications can be submitted online through Maryland OneStop.
The Renters’ Property Tax Credit Program provides tax relief for eligible renters who pay high monthly rent relative to their total income and do not receive federal or state housing subsidies or reside in public housing.
The two tax credit programs save residents more than $65 million a year.
Sufficiently completed tax credit applications will be processed 30-90 days after they are submitted, although online applications will be processed significantly faster than those submitted by mail.
