Maryland Property Tax Appeal Lawyer: Can Maryland Reassess Property Value After Purchase?

Maryland Tax Assessment AppealNo, Maryland Department of Assessments and Taxation cannot reassess because the property was purchased. Property is assessed every three years throughout the state of Maryland. The exception to this is if the property was improved (i.e. an addition, increased finished space, etc.) at which point the state could reassess in between the three year cycle; this is often triggered by the purchase of a building permit. Sometimes finished space is not discovered (no permit) until a property is sold, thus there is a correlation between purchased property and new assessments but it is only triggered by the improvement to the property that was discovered.
