Of course, if you are staying, by all means fight and get what you can. Don't waste any money on lawyers if you don't have to. I sold my house because of assessments, the home ended up being worth about 60% of assessment at sale.

Absolutely appeal it. In CA I believe you can use comps as far as 10 miles away (someone correct me if I'm wrong). There is probably something like that in MD as well.
Cash strapped bureaucrats like to screw everyone on taxes.

check with your assessor's office - some of them require actual appraisals ($400+/-) while others take comps. Some of them won't do anything until they reappraise every few years.
