Harbour Light Condominium unit owners on the waterfront in Crisfield (Somerset County) successfully appealed their 2007 tax assessments in 2008 and 2009 and achieved a 33% reduction in assessed value, resulting in lower real estate taxes (less than $4,000 depending on assessed value). State of MD formally reassesses property values every three years in each county based on sales prices but property owners can petition for reassessment each year if they feel it is justified by lower sales values for comparable properties. See MD state website http://www.dat.state.md.us/
under Real Property tab to find assessed values of property. For Crisfield properties total tax is currently $1.712 per $100 of assessed value.
