Calvert County, MD —  Calvert County is offering a tax break for disabled law enforcement officers, rescue workers, and surviving spouses.

The Calvert County Board of County Commissioners has authorized a property tax credit that would apply to the primary residence of eligible property owners or that of a surviving spouse.

Those disabled as a result of or in the course of employment as a law enforcement or correctional officer, or while in the active service of a fire, rescue or emergency medical service qualify for the credit, as do surviving spouses.

Commission President Tim Hutchins said, “The debt we owe them cannot be repaid.
We can, however, take measures to acknowledge their sacrifice, to show our gratitude and to ease the burden on those affected by loss and disability in the line of duty.”

Applications for the tax credit must be received by the Calvert County Department of Finance & Budget on or before September 1 to qualify for this year.
