Montgomery County Renter's Tax Credit Program

The State of Maryland provides a Renters' Tax Credit of up to $1,000 for renters who meet certain requirements. In 2016 the County enacted a supplement to the State Renters Credit, and all who receive the State Renters Credit will also receive the County supplemental credit. The County Renters Credit is 50% of the State credit. There is no application for the County Renters Credit, when you apply for the State Renters' Tax Credit, the State will calculate your credit and then send that information to the County. The County will use that information to calculate the County Renters Credit and you will be sent a check from the County, checks are mailed out the middle of January each year.
