Brownfield's Property Tax Credit Stipulations

Brownfields are generally considered to be abandoned or underutilized properties (especially industrial and commercial facilities) where redevelopment or expansion may be complicated by possible environmental contamination (real or perceived). However, a brownfield site, as defined by The Small Business Liability Relief and Brownfields Revitalization Act of January 11, 2002, is any "real property, the expansion, redevelopment, or reuse of which may be complicated by the presence or potential presence of a hazardous substance, pollutant, or contaminant."A recipient of the property tax credit under this article is no longer eligible if the recipient of the property tax credit withdraws from the voluntary cleanup program under Section 7-512(A) or (B) of the Environment Article of the Maryland Code; or the Maryland Department of the Environment withdraws approval of a Response Action Plan or a Certificate of Completion under Section 7-512(E) and (F) of the Environment Article of the Maryland Code.
