Frequently Asked Questions About Out of State Purchases

1 - Is the tax on out-of-state purchases computed the same way as the tax on sales inside Maryland?

Basically, yes. Maryland does, however, grant a credit for the sales tax paid to another state up to the amount of the Maryland tax. In addition, a 10 percent depreciation allowance may be taken for each full year the property is used by the purchaser before being brought to Maryland.
