ARYLAND HOMEOWNERS WHO WISH
to submit their one-time application to confirm eligibility for thehomestead tax credit, the deadline is finally approaching.Every principal residence homeowner in Maryland should follow these steps to make sure that their property isregistered and eligible for the homestead tax credit:
Step 1: CHECK YOUR STATUS.
Visit the Maryland State Department of Assessments & Taxation (SDAT) Real Property Data Search page.  Select the county and search either by Street Address, Map/Parcel, Property Account Identifier or PropertySales (typically Street Address is the easiest way to search).Once you have entered the information, the tax record for your property will appear. At the bottom of therecord, a separate category appears called Homestead Application Information, and beneath that category is theHomestead Application Status.There are four status categories: Approved (with date of approval); Application received (but not yetprocessed); No application; or Application denied.If your application is listed as approved, you previously filed the homestead and have nothing further to do. If itis "received," you should check back to make sure it is approved. If your status states "no application," continueto Step 2. If the application has been denied and you disagree with the denial, you should contact theHomestead Division to contest the denial:
