Sample Property Tax Report for a Harford County, MD property

In Maryland, state law provides that all real property is subject to property tax. Property tax is primarily a local government revenue.

Market Value

The Department of Assessments and Taxation appraises each property once every three years in order to get the market values. Market value, also known as full cash value or fair market value, has been defined by The Supreme Court as the sale price of real estate as agreed upon between a willing buyer and willing seller, with neither being under duress to buy or sell.

Land value $112,600
Improvement value + $142,400
Market value = $255,000
Assessed Value

Assessed value is the foundation upon which taxing authorities determine the amount of real estate taxes to be paid. Properties are assessed at 100% of their fair market values.

Assessed value = $255,000
Property Tax

Property tax is calculated by multiplying the taxable value by the corresponding tax rates.
Taxable value represents the assessed value less any tax deductions that apply. A variety of full and partial exemptions and credit programs, like homestead tax credit, are available and may lower the property's tax bill.

Current tax represents an estimate of what the present owner pays including exemptions and homestead credit.
Base tax is an estimate of what an owner not benefiting from any exemptions would pay.

Tax description Assessed value Exemptions Taxable value Tax rate Tax amount
State $255,000 - $0 = $255,000 * 0.1120% = $285.60
County $255,000 - $0 = $255,000 * 0.8960% = $2,284.80
Special Tax $255,000 - $0 = $255,000 * 0.1460% = $372.30
Current tax = $2,942.70
Base tax $255,000 * 1.1540% = $2,942.70
