July Discount Rate Available Through August 7th
FREDERICK, Md. – Changes to the Maryland State Department of Assessments and Taxation’s billing process led to delays in the processing of property tax bills for Frederick County property owners. The mailing of bills began a few days later than usual, with the first items being sent July 7 and the last bills mailed July 11.
As a result of the delay, an extension has been granted for the 1% discount rate typically offered to taxpayers who pay their bills by the end of July. The extension will be applied to tax bills that are paid no later than Monday, Aug. 7. Payments made in person must be delivered by 4 p.m. that day. Online payments will be accepted at the discounted rate until 11:59 p.m. Payments mailed via U.S. Postal Service must be postmarked no later than Aug. 7 to receive the discount.
Anyone with questions about their property tax bill can call the Treasury Department at 301-600-1111.
