Does the City offer discounts if I pay my property taxes early?
Yes, there is a 0.5% discount of the City Tax if the bill is paid by July 31.
What are my options if I cannot afford to pay my property tax bill?
The City does not enter into payment agreements for real estate taxes. The City accepts partial payments that will be credited to your tax bill, but your bill must be paid in full before December 31 of the year the bill was issued. If your bill is not paid in full, your property is at risk for inclusion in the tax sale in May of the following year.
What do I do if I overpaid my property taxes by accident?
Send a written request to the Revenue Accounting Section, 200 Holliday Street, Room 3, Baltimore, MD 21202. Make sure to include on your request your account number, proof of payment, and if you prefer to receive a refund check or would like the funds transferred to another account. If you would like the funds transferred to another account, make sure to include the type of account and account number where the funds are to be directed.
