Tax Information
Property Tax
The City of Rockville charges residents a real property tax and charges businesses a real and personal property tax. The amounts charged are based on the City's tax rates and the value of the properties. The FY 2014 tax rates equal $0.292 per $100 of assessed value for real property and $0.805 per $100 of assessed value for personal property.

Property value is determined by the assessed value of real estate (including land and structures on the land) and the assessed value of personal property of business establishments (inventory, furniture and fixtures). The Maryland State Department of Assessments and Taxation (SDAT) is responsible for determining the assessed values for all properties located in the City of Rockville. More than half of all of the City's General Fund revenues are derived from real and personal property tax.

The City of Rockville's property taxes are billed on the Montgomery County consolidated tax bill in July of each year.  Residents and businesses can view their real property tax bills on the County's website at https://www6.montgomerycountymd.gov/apps/tax/index.asp.  Here you can search all real property tax bills by account number, bill number, or street address.

Businesses can view their personal property tax bills on the County's website at https://www6.montgomerycountymd.gov/apps/personalproperty/index.cfm.  Here you can search all personal property tax bills by account number, bill number, or company name.

Income Tax
Income tax revenue is the second-largest source of revenue in the General Fund. Income tax revenue consists of the City's share of income taxes received by the State of Maryland from returns filed from Rockville. The City does not have a separate income tax rate, but receives 17 percent of collected County income taxes. Montgomery County's income tax rate for FY 2014 is 3.2 percent.

All property tax and income tax revenue is collected by the State of Maryland and Montgomery County, which then distribute Rockville's share to the City.

Homeowners' Property Tax Credit Program
The City of Rockville offers a supplemental credit to the State of Maryland's Homeowners' Tax Credit Program. This State administered program provides real property tax credits to low- and moderate-income residents for property taxes on their principal residence. Under the City's current Program, households with gross incomes up to $91,000 per year and a household net worth of less than $200,000 (not including the value of the home or qualified retirement savings) could qualify for tax relief on the first $495,000 of their home's assessed value. For low-income households, the credit could be several hundred dollars, with a maximum credit of the total City tax due on the first $495,000 of assessed value.

To be eligible for the tax credit, a detailed application must be submitted to the State of Maryland's Department of Assessments and Taxation. The deadline for submission of the application is September 1, 2014.

Senior Property Tax Credit: If you are eligible for any of the State, Montgomery County or City of Rockville credits, and you are at least 70 years of age, you will automatically receive this credit as well.

The application and more detailed information can be found on the Maryland State Department of Assessments and Taxation Web site, www.dat.state.md.us.
