Modular Buildings

Sales of modular buildings are subject to Maryland's 6 percent sales and use tax and the rate is applied to 60 percent of the taxable price.

A "modular building" would include:

  • Single-family or multifamily houses;
  • Apartment units;
  • Commercial buildings; and
  • Certain permanent additions to single-family or multifamily houses, apartment units, or commercial buildings.

The permanent additions are taxable if they are comprised of one or more sections that are:

  • Intended to become real property;
  • Primarily constructed at a location other than the permanent site at which they are to be assembled;
  • Built to comply with the standards for industrialized buildings under Title 12, Subtitle 3 of the Public Safety Article; and
  • Shipped with most permanent components in place.
