Last Tax Free Cyber Monday for Maryland Amazon Shoppers

This is of particular interest to Marylanders now, since the announcement of Amazon’s decision to open a distribution center in southeast Baltimore. While the distribution center is estimated to bring 1,000 full time jobs to the area, it will also bring with it a 6 percent sales tax on online purchases. One catch being your purchase doesn’t have to come from the Baltimore warehouse to be taxed. ALL Amazon purchases will now be taxed.
