Blog Looks at Maryland, Virginia Taxes
August 22, 2008
Blue Ridge Forum, a blog on Maryland and Virginia regional issues, quotes Tax Foundation materials in assessing the area’s tax burdens:
What would taxpayer advocates do without the Tax Foundation?
Last week, that non-partisan professional group published a most instructive “County and City Income Taxes Clustered in States with Poor Tax Climates” here.[…]
The Foundation followed up here this week with a list of Maryland county income taxesnoting that: “Nonresidents are not subject to the county income tax, but must pay to the state an amount equivalent to the lowest county tax rate (currently 1.25% – Maryland residents should thank Worcester County for keeping this low!).”
The Forum goes on to discuss Josh Barro’s blog post “State Lawmakers Promote Sound Tax Policy by Doing Nothing.”
