Generally taxes in Montgomery County are higher, however, if the home is located within city limits, taxes are higher in both Frederick and Montgomery Counties. For example, a home that is located within the Rockville, MD city limits will have both a city tax and a county tax combined. The same holds true for certain areas within Frederick County. In another part of Frederick County, for example, Urbana, MD is located in a special tax district which has a special tax and a county tax. There are parts of Frederick County where the taxes are actually higher than Montgomery County.....It just depends on the area. Hope this helps and the property tax record will show taxes associated with a property.
Usually, a home buyer's first consideration will be proximity to work. For those working downcounty, or in D.C. or Northern VA, a commute to Frederick County can be too much to bear. A workplace in Rockville or Germantown, however, make this commute more doable.
