Tax Appeal Deadlines Approaching – Plan Now to Take Necessary Steps to Seek Reductions of Real Estate Taxes in Maryland

Notices of Assessment will be sent to property owners at the end of December 2018 and the assessed values contained in those Notices will apply to the calculation of taxes for those properties for the 2019-2021 Tax Years. Appeals will be due approximately 45 days after the date the Notices are sent. One-third of the properties in Maryland are reassessed each year. Wheaton and Silver Spring are among the commercial areas of Montgomery County that are among those facing reassessment in 2019. We are also able to file tax assessment appeals in many other Maryland counties as well. If you are uncertain as to whether your properties are being reassessed in 2019, we are able to assist you. 

If your income-producing property is not being reassessed this year, but you have experienced a substantial loss of income during the current year, you may be able to obtain property tax relief for the remaining year(s) of the current triennial with the filing of a Petition for Review. The deadline to file a Petition for Review is January 2, 2019.
