Sales and Use Tax

Businesses in Maryland are required to collect Maryland's 6 percent sales and use tax and or 9 percent alcoholic beverage taxes from you whenever you make a taxable purchase. The sale of tangible personal property is generally taxable except as otherwise provided by law; the sale of a service is generally not taxable except for certain taxable services provided by law.
