Greetings!

My husband and I are looking to find a more permanent home for our growing family (one boy and another one on the way any day now). I'm a teacher in Montgomery County, MD but having grown up in a MUCH more rural area I'm itching to get away from such large cities. WV has always seemed so lovely and I've been looking at homes in the 'pan handle' but was warned by some friends that living in WV and working in MD will have me paying out my nose in taxes. Aside from general taxes (as answered in the thread two down from me ) is there some sort of extra tax when working out of state and is it really as bad as everyone is making it out to be?

Zoe,

AFAIK, there's no sort of special tax for out of state commuters. And I believe that state income tax is based on residence, not on where you work.

Where you "might" get hit is with local wage taxes. The county/municipality where you work might want to collect it from you, as well as the county/municipality where you live.

We have a couple of regulars on here who live in the EP and work in MD or VA, they can give you a better picture.

Thank you!

My husband grew up in Baltimore, but I grew up on a big farm outside of a 50 person town. . . living in Frederick as we do now makes me feel claustrophobic , even though he seems to love it. I understand that that area of WV is quickly becoming an extension of DC/Frederick, but when we drive through it doesn't remind me nearly as much of a sardine can.

It looks to be a nice mix of close to city things with the possibility of actually having a nice yard made of grass!
