Frederick County introduces a pilot third party notification program for homeowners who are at least 65 years of age or are disabled.
The Third Party Notification program permits an older adult, or individual with a disability, to designate a third party to receive copies of their real estate tax bill. The Third Party designee is not responsible for payment of the taxes or delinquencies, but agrees to check on the property owner to be sure that the tax notices have been received and encourages the importance of prompt payment. The third party designee could be a relative, friend, neighbor or someone else who the property owner chooses.
Homeowners who are at least 65 years of age or are disabled, can take advantage of the third party notification program, free of charge.
