How To View Your Tax Map
A Tax Map is an approximate drawing by the State of Maryland of the property. A Tax Map is not a survey or a subdivision plat. The Tax Map will not show the dimensions of the lot or where the house or any other improvements are located on the lot, but there are certain situations when viewing the Tax Map is very useful. While most properties are shown on a Tax Map, all properties do not show up on the Tax Maps. However, for those that are shown on the Tax Map, fortunately Maryland makes it easy to access that Tax Map. Below we take you through the process.
