UNLOCKING BALTIMORE'S
POTENTIAL FOR ALL

Help build a more prosperous and equitable future for our city with property tax relief for every property owner in the city.

For decades, Baltimore City and its residents have been burdened by a property tax that far exceeds those of surrounding counties.

Sign our petition to ease that burden by capping and lowering Baltimore City’s Property Tax Rate

Baltimore City’s property tax rate of $2.248 is more than double Baltimore County’s rate of $1.10 and every other county in Maryland, making it difficult for people to live in our city and for businesses to grow and prosper in our city. It discourages much-needed  investment—everything from ordinary home improvements to large-scale redevelopment of vacant and abandoned property.

Let's lower our property taxes
