Ho Co's "Livable Homes" Tax Credit

The Howard County Council passed Council Bill 28-2012, the "Livable Homes" tax credit, which provides a 50% tax credit up to $2500 for accessibility modifications. The Livable Homes Tax credit was signed into law by the County Executive, and is in effect as of December 5, 2012. It helps cover the cost of making modifications to your home to better accommodate physical challenges.

It works as a credit against your county tax for a feature that is installed on an existing residence that is the owner’s principal residence when the feature is installed. The amount of the credit is the lesser of 50% of the eligible cost or $2,500.
