Tax Relief May Be Available For Property Owners Impacted By Monday's Severe Weather

The Maryland State Department of Assessments and Taxation is encouraging residents whose real property was damaged by Monday’s severe weather to contact the Department, as they may qualify to have their property assessments reduced. Queen Anne’s County residents can fill out the Damaged Property Assessment Reduction Application below and email it to sdat.qaco@maryland.gov, or call the local office at (410) 819-4160 for more information.The applications can also be mailed to the local office in Queen Anne's County at 120 Broadway, Suite 7, Centreville, MD 21617.

In the coming weeks, SDAT’s assessors will also begin visiting areas impacted by the severe weather to locate and identify damaged property. When a decrease in value is confirmed by an assessor—either from an exterior inspection or from a resident submitting the attached application—the new real property assessment will be sent to Queen Anne’s County’s Finance Office and a new tax bill may be issued. If a property owner has already paid their tax bill, a prorated abatement will be issued. If the extent of damage is not clear from an exterior inspection, the attached application will be delivered to the property owner for them to complete and send back.
