The Harford County Council recently enacted the Senior Citizens and Veterans Tax Credit Program. The program grants an individual owning a home that meets certain requirements a 20% credit on their real property tax for a maximum of five years. The home must have an assessed value of $400,000 or less and the individual must be at least 65 years old and either:
- have owned and lived in the home at least 40 years; or
- have retired from the United States’ Uniformed Services
To be approved for this credit, the property owner must submit an application and required documentation by April 1st for each year the credit is sought.
