Tax Relief in Maryland

When analyzing Maryland's rankings with respect to taxes, state residents tend to be near the top of the charts - both positive and negative. For example, Maryland has the fourth highest median household income in the nation: $65,262. Unsurprisingly, the state also has the 7th highest average federal income tax collection among all fifty states, with a typical amount of $12,882, more than $1,000 higher than the national average.

Although Maryland's top individual income tax rate is 5.75%, 24th lowest among all states levying an individual income tax, the actual amount collected in local and state income taxes ($1,823) puts Maryland in 2nd highest place.

With respect to property taxes, Maryland collects $1,449 per capita, 17th highest in the nation.

Residents of Maryland have experienced the decline in median household incomes that has affected all of the United States. On average, household incomes have dropped by approximately 11.5% in recent years. This decline in income, coupled with other financial challenges due to job loss, medical bills, or other unexpected debts have resulted in a significant portion of state residents becoming delinquent in meeting their tax obligations as they do not have savings set aside for the purpose of paying their tax bills.

However, many individuals in Maryland are turning to tax relief companies to help address their struggles with tax debt. An experienced tax relief company can help residents avoid or eliminate the stress of wage garnishment, seizure of assets, and knowing that they are under scrutiny by the IRS or state tax collection agencies. There are a number of strategies available for tax relief, such as reviewing and amending tax returns, setting up payment plans, and even negotiating penalty abatement. Tax relief experts are the best source of information and help in employing such approaches and can help Maryland residents solve their serious tax debt problems.
