If your home is your primary residence, you may be eligible for a Homestead Tax Credit. This limits the amount that your tax bill can increase each year. Please visit the Maryland Homestead Tax Credit page for details. Note that property owners are required to complete a one-time application to show eligibility. An online version of the form can be completed on the State Department of Assessment and Taxation website.

In addition to the County and City, property taxes also support the Maryland National Capital Park and Planning Commission, the Stormwater Chesapeake Bay Water Quality and the Washington Suburban Transit Commission.
