Howard County Livable Homes Tax Credit Program

Livable Homes Tax Credit Program at a Glance:

  • A tax credit may be available for certain types of accessibility features (defined in the county code Section 20-129C) installed in a Howard County homeowner’s principal residence.
  • The property owner may file an application to receive a credit against county tax for a feature that is installed on an existing residence as long as the home is the owner’s principal residence when the feature is installed.
  • The amount of the credit is equal to 50% of the eligible cost or $2,500, whichever is less.  
  • You must obtain a permit from the Department of Inspections, Licenses, & Permits (DILP) for the work (even if the scope of the work would not normally require a permit and inspections).
