Resources Law by State Maryland/Washington DC Sales Tax Rate

Maryland/Washington DC Sales Tax Rate

Maryland has a 6% state sales and use tax, with exceptions for medicine, residential energy, and most non-prepared foods. Currently, many services (e.g., auto repair labor, haircuts, accounting) are not taxed. With this tax increase, Maryland added sales tax on Internet purchases and other mail items such as magazine subscriptions. Clothing is also taxable.

Certain computer services were to be subject to sales tax and use tax effective July 1, 2008 after being approved without public hearing during the 2007 Special Legislative Session. However, after effective lobbying by computer services professionals, the tax was repealed April 6 during the final days of the General Assembly. Following declining approval ratings and intense public pressure, Governor Martin O'Malley relented and authorized the repeal.
