One has to take a long hard look at one's budget and if one can continue to afford to age at home. It might be easier to downsize and move into something much more affordable because with a home something is always in need of repair.
While not specifically taxes, utilities in our area offer reduced elderly rates as well as shutoff plans to avoid shutting off of services.
Over the years I've read of programs that do help seniors stay in their homes, but they might be focused on health issues. I don't recall or have links to any such information, but you could try a few things:
1. Google Maryland, programs to help seniors remain at home.
2. Contact the MD state agency on again, if there is one, or any county level social work agencies for seniors.
3. Contact your local elected reps and senators.
4 Contact the local Area Agency on Aging.
