Attention: 2011 Maryland Reassessments Coming Shortly

December 14, 2010

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year! And with the New Year will come the real property tax reassessments for one-third of commercial and residential properties by the State of Maryland. The reassessments will be for the 2011-13 triennial period. The reassessment notices will be mailed towards the end of this month and should be received shortly after the New Year.
With declining real estate values and increasing expenses facing owners of property in Maryland, it is extremely important to carefully review each notice of assessment to evaluate whether it fairly represents the current market value of the property. Being able to receive a reduction in the tax assessment, and thereby reduce a property's tax liability, can be an effective way to reduce expenses in these difficult times.

The notice of assessment will specify a relatively short period of time in which to note an appeal (45 days from the date of the notice of assessment, which will be on or before February 11, 2011), so it is extremely important to promptly forward copies of those notices to us when received. We can then evaluate them and make our recommendations to you as to whether appeals should be filed.
