Worcester Co. FY ’21 budget holds the line on property taxes


Worcester County will maintain its real property tax rate at 84.5 cents per $100 of assessed value under a budget approved by County Commissioners for fiscal year 2021.

The spending package totals more than $204,000,000, one-and-a-half percent more than the current year’s budget.

Worcester County Officials say they tried to act proactively to address the fiscal impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, keeping in mind that the state budget could be further reduced.

Worcester County’s local tax rates are among the lowest of any county in Maryland.
