The Tax Relief program has a yearly maximum of $1500.00 in relief. Applicants to the program may qualify for anywhere from 5% to 100% relief (up to $1500.00). This relief is processed as a credit to your account with the Treasurer. No liens are placed on your property. When property is sold or transferred, the tax credit is prorated based on the applicant’s full months of ownership.
Tax Relief must be requested by filing a form annually with the Department of Real Estate Assessments. First-time applicants must file a full application and provide supporting documentation. The same is required every three years. For the two years following each complete application year, a one page affidavit must be filed.
All information collected is considered private and confidential.
No appointment is necessary but you may call ahead to schedule one if needed.
The filing deadlines for applications and affidavits are:
April 1, for all applicants who are currently in the program
December 31, for first-time applicants
