State and Local Tax Burdens on Households in the Metro Area: DC’s Are Lowest

District, Measured

In 2013, a household in the District’s suburbs with an income of $75,000 paid 9 percent to 25 percent more in state and local taxes than a DC household with the same income.

Each year, the Office of Revenue Analysis produces a study called “Tax Rates and Tax Burdens: Washington Metropolitan Area 2013,” in which we estimate state and local tax burdens for a family of three at different income levels in eight Washington-area jurisdictions. The jurisdictions are DC; Montgomery and Prince George’s counties in Maryland; Arlington and Fairfax counties in Virginia; and the Virginia cities of Alexandria, Fairfax, and Falls Church.

For the 2013 tax year, we find that DC has the lowest combined tax burdens compared to its metro area neighbors across four main taxes (income, property, sales, and auto taxes), and at each annual income level in the report ($25,000; $50,000; $75,000; $100,000; and $150,000).
