Deadline extended for tax credit

The Maryland Department of Assessments and Taxation has extended the deadline for homeowners to submit applications for its property tax credit program from Sept. 1 to Nov. 1.

The program sets a limit on the amount of property taxes a homeowner pays based on income. The combined household income limit is $60,000.

Robert Young, deputy director of the state department, said the extension was offered in part to provide new applicants, who in previous years were ineligible, a chance to become familiar with the program.
