Maryland’s County Income Taxes

July 16, 2008

Our recent report on local income and wage taxes notes that all 23 Maryland counties impose an income tax on residents, but does not break them out. Based on a few requests, we do so here.

A side note: 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!).

Here are the local income taxes by county:
