The Maryland State Department of Assessments and Taxation (SDAT) is encouraging residents whose real property was damaged by Monday’s severe weather to contact the Department, as they may qualify to have their property assessments reduced. Queen Anne’s County residents can fill out the attached pdfs and email it to [email protected], or call our local office at (410) 819-4160 for more information. The applications can also be mailed to our local office in Queen Anne’s County at 120 Broadway, Suite 7, Centreville, MD 21617.

In the coming weeks, SDAT’s assessors will also begin visiting areas impacted by the severe weather to locate and identify damaged property. When a decrease in value is confirmed by an assessor—either from an exterior inspection or from a resident submitting the attached application—the new real property assessment will be sent to Queen Anne’s County’s Finance Office and a new tax bill may be issued. If a property owner has already paid their tax bill, a prorated abatement will be issued. If the extent of damage is not clear from an exterior inspection, the attached application will be delivered to the property owner for them to complete and send back.

Since Monday morning, SDAT has been in contact with state and local governments, and has visited the temporary shelter at Centreville Middle School to ensure that residents who may qualify for a reduced assessment are aware of this application.
