Maryland Taxes- How They Are Different From Taxes In Other States

By: Abhishek Agarwal

Maryland enjoys honor of being one of the oldest and wealthiest sates of the Union. There are total of four brackets of income tax in Maryland taxes ranging from 2% to 4.75%. Maryland being one of the last states to undertake this also levies piggyback taxes at local level also. These piggyback taxes ranges from 1.25% and go until 3.2%.

In Maryland state, commerce plays an important role in its economy and these revenues supports it. To keep running the state, Maryland needs to keep its busy ports functional and clean for which it requires money which is generated by these Maryland taxes.

You would be surprised to know that the property taxes are not specified in Maryland. However, sales tax is levied at 5% in the state. Moreover, the rates are adjusted in a manner so that it can help provide essential revenues from one county or city to another.

Such adjustments are done annually and are disclosed via a public announcement to dicuss the new tax rates. Taxes in the state are assessed both on land as well as land improvements. An appraisal of the market value of property is done and then it is taxed according to its assessed value. Expanding businesses can even receive credits upon the improvements for their property. Maryland taxes exempt properties used or owned by churches or by any other non-profit organizations.

Maryland taxes are set up like many other states to assist in boom of businesses. Whenever any business establishes itself in Enterprise Zones, it not only improves the value of other commercial properties but also receive tax credits which can last up to ten years or more altogether.

Enterprise Zones are those zones which were considered economically distressed. If you are a developing company then such combination of land tax credits would ease your burden to a large extent. Businesses can also be benefitted by credit upon their Maryland taxes by specializing in fields such as research and development or biotechnology. Women and minority owned businesses would also receive good incentives.

If you compare the taxes in Maryland with other states you would find it to be considerably very higher. Many people who work in nation's capital usually belong to Maryland only. It would not be wrong to say that the state is highly progressive and notably diverse in numerous ways. Most of the taxes are now imposed at county or city level along with state taxes.

No city, county etc. are deprived of funds as there is abundant revenue with them. Local tax revenue funds all the programs, parks or schools and they stay well funded. It is becoming a center for many businesses as various types of tax credits are often offered to new and old companies.
