County and State Tax Rates
The diverse source of revenue to the County has allowed the County to maintain a stable tax structure. The last change to tax rates was actually a decrease to the property real tax rates. This ensures a consistent tax rate into the future.
Baltimore County is the single taxing authority within its borders. There are no school, fire, stormwater or special taxing districts, nor other overlapping jurisdictions (city, towns, villages) within Baltimore County.
