Senior Tax Credit
The Town of Walkersville announces a new Senior Tax Credit for homeowners age 65 and over. The amount of the Walkersville tax credit is 50% of the net Town tax. The credit is a supplement to the State’s Homeowner Tax Credit and County’s Senior Tax Credit, and all qualifications and limitations of these credits apply. The credit is effective with the upcoming July 1 real estate tax bill. To apply, residents should complete a State Homeowner Tax Credit application – just the one application that allows a homeowner to apply for the State Homeowner Tax Credit, County Senior Tax Credit, and Walkersville Senior Tax Credit. If a resident has already applied for these credits for the upcoming tax bill, they need to do nothing further. If the homeowner qualifies for the County’s Senior Tax Credit and resides within the Town’s municipal limits, they will qualify for the Town’s new tax credit and the Property Tax Credit Application Form HTC (2021) | Maryland OneStop (md.gov). For additional information, homeowners can contact the Town for information on the Town’s tax credit or the County Treasury Department for information on the State, County, and Town tax credits. The County Treasury Department can be reached at 301.600.1111 or by email at; Treasuryquestions@frederickcountymd.gov.
