Residential Property Taxes – Prince George’s County, Maryland

Owning a home is a dream come true, but it comes with many responsibilities. One of those responsibilities is paying property taxes annually. The Prince George’s County Treasury Division mails out residential tax bills in July each year. It is important to note, just because a tax bill was not received, it does not exempt the property owner from paying penalties. Taxes that are not paid by the due date may accrue tax, penalties and interest.
