Maryland Title & Property Deed Service: Maryland Property Title & Deed Recordation Tax Exemptions



When Maryland property is transferred subject to a mortgage or deed of trust, the recordation tax does not apply to the principal amount of debt assumed by the transferee, if the instrument of writing transfers the property from the transferor to a: spouse or former spouse; son, daughter, stepson, or stepdaughter; parent or stepparent; son-in-law, daughter-in-law, stepson-in-law, or stepdaughter-in-law; parent-in-law or stepparent-in-law; brother, sister, stepbrother, or stepsister; grandchild or stepgrandchild; grandparent or stepgrandparent; or domestic partner or former domestic partner.

This exemption needs to be included, with specific legal citation on either the deed and/or the intake sheet, depending on the specific county requirements. Each Maryland county, and the city of Baltimore, has their own filing requirements.
