Taxes

REAL PROPERTY TAX

All real property in the State of Maryland is assessed by the State Department of Assessments & Taxation (“SDAT”) on a triennial basis. Since October 1, 2000, the taxable assessment is 100% of full value. Prince George’s County has its own assessment office in our Town of Upper Marlboro. The Town’s real property tax rate is set annually by the Board of Commissioners as part of the adopted budget for the succeeding fiscal year (July 1 begins fiscal year). The Town has two classifications for real property tax rates, residential and commercial:

  • The residential real property tax rate for the current fiscal year is 38.00 cents per $100 of assessed valuation.
  • The commercial real property tax rate for the current fiscal year is 57.00 cents per $100 of assessed valuation

 Prince George’s County collects all real property taxes for the Town of Upper Marlboro as part of the County’s consolidated tax bill, issued annually on July 1. For property owners within the corporate limits of the Town, tax relief is provided in the form of a “tax differential”. This is a reduction in the County tax rate for services provided by the Town, which are not required to be provided by Prince George’s County. In addition, owner-occupied properties receive the benefit of the “homestead tax credit” which limits assessment increases each year to specified percentages (Town 4%, County 0%, State 10%).
