New budget proposal yields higher income tax rate

Maryland

A new budget proposal has resulted in an additional hearing for the Washington County FY2020 budget.

The revised proposal includes a higher income above the current income tax rate of 2.8%. The proposed rate would increase the income tax rate to 3.2% and allow the property tax to remain at 0.948%. 

In a release, the county noted the most recent adjustments would provide adequate funding for education, public safety and infrastructure.
