IF YOU ARE A HOMEOWNER IN MARYLAND, YOU BETTER HAVE A DEED! HERE'S WHERE TO CHECK FOR FREE, AND POSSIBLY GET TAX CREDITS, TOO
Too many Marylanders think they own their home, but actually do not have a legal deed to the property. You need a deed or you cannot put it in your will, cannot leave the home to family, cannot quality for rehab grants, etc. Here is a link to a site for checking if you have a deed: http://www.myhomemydeed.org/. On the bottom of the page, you can check to see if you might qualify for a homeowners' tax credit. The page in Spanish is: http://www.myhomemydeed.org/my-deed-en-espanol/.
My Home, My Deed, My Legacy is a project of Maryland Volunteer Lawyers Service (MVLS) and Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development
Renters also are possible eligible for a tax credit. You might get a check for hundreds! To see if you qualify, go to: https://dat.maryland.gov/realproperty/Pages/Renters'-Tax-Credits.aspx.
