Maryland’s State Department of Assessments and Taxation fielded more than 924 calls from Montgomery County residents who were confused about their eligibility for the county’s Income Tax Offset Credit. That’s the $692 tax credit, often referenced in county materials as ITOC, tied to a homeowner’s primary residence. WTOP reported on the county’s news release that urged residents to make sure they had a Homestead Tax Credit, or HTC, on file with the State Department of Assessments and Taxation, or they could lose their county tax credit.
