New Montgomery County Recordation Tax Law

 Effective March 1, 2008

Effective March 1, 2008, the recordation taxes for Montgomery County, Maryland will be increased to $10 per $1000 for consideration payable over $500,000.00.  Consideration payable of $500,000.00 or less will continue to be taxed at the current rate of $6.90 per $1000.00.  The tax calculation will continue to exempt the first $50,000.00 of the sales price from recordation tax if the property is to be owner occupied.  The new Act applies to any transaction that occurs on or after March 1, 2008.  The new Act, however, does not affect the existing State and Montgomery County transfer taxes.  To avoid any confusion in advising or preparing net sheets for your clients, we are providing the following examples as to how the new Montgomery County recordation tax will be applied.
