    Maryland doesn't collect sales tax on purchases of most prescription drugs and groceries. In general, necessities such as groceries, clothes, and drugs are exempted from the sales tax or charged at a lower sales tax rate.

    Some items may not be eligible for these reduced sales tax rates, such as expensive clothing, unhealthy food or drinks like soda, and certain non-essential pharmaceuticals. Other items including gasoline, alcohol, and cigarettes are also subject to Maryland excise taxes.

    In some states, items like alcohol and prepared food (including restaurant meals and some premade supermarket items) are charged at a higher sales tax rate. The MD sales tax on cars, boats, and real estate sales may also vary by jurisdiction. Maryland's sales tax rates for commonly exempted items are as follows:
