Tax Credit Opportunity for Eligible Low-Income Renters

March 29, 2018

Montgomery County renters with household income up to $73,000 may qualify for a tax credit of up to $1,000 if they are age 60 or older, are 100 percent disabled or if they are under age 60 and have dependent children under age 18. The program is designed to help renters who are struggling with rising rent payments and meet the program’s eligibility criteria.

   The Montgomery County’s Renters Tax Credit program is managed by the State of Maryland and enhanced by Montgomery County. Renters who qualify will receive one check from Maryland and another from Montgomery County. Checks from Montgomery County are mailed once a year—in January.

   Applications must be filed by September 1. Application forms are available by calling 1-800-944-7403 or via email at taxcreditapp@maryland.gov.

   Applications also can be printed out online from the website. Applicants can fill out the form, include supporting documents and mail it to the address provided.

   To learn more about the program, go to montgomerycountymd.gov/Finance/renter.html.

   The Housing Initiative Partnership is providing help to those who need assistance in determining if they qualify. For assistance, call 301-916-5946 or email ccastro@hiphomes.org.

   In 2016 the County enacted a County supplement to the State Renters’ Tax Credit so that all renters who receive the State credit also will receive the County supplement that is equal to 50 percent of the State credit. A separate application for the County supplement is not needed because when a renter applies for the State credit, the State calculates the eligible credit and sends that information to the County. The County then calculates the Montgomery supplement.
