More Mary­land tax-fil­ers move out than move in

Baltimore Sun - - NATION & WORLD - — Natalie Sher­man

Mary­land had more tax-fil­ers move out than move in last year, as fam­i­lies headed south to states such as Vir­ginia and Florida. The state saw a net loss of nearly 8,000 house­holds, as 68,384 fam­i­lies opted to go abroad or to an­other state, but just 60,429 moved in, ac­cord­ing to new IRS data. About 63,356 house­holds re­lo­cated within the state, said the IRS, which tracked the num­ber of fil­ers us­ing a dif­fer­ent ad­dress in 2015 than in 2014. As in prior years, Florida saw the big­gest net in­crease of Mary­land fam­i­lies. Nearly 60 per­cent of the house­holds mov­ing out and in were aged 35 or younger. The num­bers pointed to a sig­nif­i­cant de­cline in re­lo­ca­tions com­pared to 2013-2014, when the IRS re­ported that more than 80,000 fam­i­lies moved in or out.
