Maryland State Income Tax Deductions

Income tax deductions are expenses that can be deducted from your gross pre-tax income before determining your taxable income.

Maryland Standard Deduction

The Maryland standard deduction is $2,000.00 for individuals and $4,000.00 for married couples filing jointly. The standard deduction may be chosen instead of filing an itemized deduction on your Maryland tax return.

Maryland Personal Exemptions

Maryland's personal income tax exemptions include a personal exemption of $3,200.00. You can deduct one single exemption from your gross income if you are responsible for supporting yourself financially.

Maryland Dependent Deduction

Maryland has a dependent exemption of $3,200.00. You may claim one dependent exemption for each of the children, relatives, or others who live with and are supported by you as described § 152 of the IRC (Internal Revenue Code).

Maryland Itemized Deductions

Maryland allows itemized deductions, and you can claim the same itemized deductions on your Maryland tax return as you do on your Federal tax return. You must choose between itemizing your deductions and choosing the Maryland standard deduction, so it's generally only worth itemizing your deductions if your itemized total is more then the Maryland and Federal standard deductions.
