I need to process a deed of transfer for a property located in the County. What do I do?
The Department of the Treasury is responsible for stamping every deed before it can be recorded at the Harford County Courthouse, whether or not it is necessary for taxes to be paid. If the property has been flagged by the Maryland Department of Assessments and Taxation for Agricultural Transfer Tax then the deed will need to be presented to the Maryland Department of Assessments and Taxation first for clearance, then presented to the Department of the Treasury, Bureau of Revenue Collections.

When recording a deed for a property in the municipalities of the County, please have it stamped by the appropriate municipality prior to presenting it to the Bureau of Revenue Collections. Municipalities can be contacted at:

City of Aberdeen: 410-272-2222
City of Havre de Grace: 410-939-1800
Town of Bel Air: 410-638-4555
