The legislature’s fiscal analysts are proposing a senseless property tax increase. Before I was elected governor, Maryland had suffered through eight long years with 40 consecutive tax hikes in a row.
Since the moment I took office, our entire team has worked tirelessly to ease the tax burden left behind by the previous administration, putting over $1.2 billion back into the pockets of hardworking families, retirees, and small businesses.
This year, our administration proposed over $500 million in new tax relief this legislative session – we should be looking for MORE opportunities to CUT taxes, not the other way around.
Now, these legislative analysts want to reverse our incredible economic turnaround by inflicting a $76 million annual property tax hike on you and your family. We absolutely cannot let the General Assembly return to the failed tax-and-spend policies of the past.
Maryland does not have a revenue problem – the legislature has a spending problem. In just two months, they have already called for an additional $5.6 billion in new mandated spending – and they want you to pay for it. That is the kind of unsustainable, and frankly, irresponsible, behavior you elected me to put a stop to.
We need your help NOW. Call the representatives on the House Appropriations and Senate Budget and Taxation committees. Tell them to reject this ridiculous tax hike that will harm families all across our state → https://larryhogan.com/committee-contact/
