Income tax distributions, down again, add to county challenges

From today’s coverage in the Baltimore Sun:

The latest state income tax payments to local governments fell $61.8 million year over year, piling new fiscal woes atop budgets already reeling from state cuts, high snow removal costs and earlier revenue declines.

In further coverage, comments from county officials reinforced the disappointing yield numbers — both from counties who may need to make additional reconciliations, and those who already “built in” this downturn into revenue forecasts (in many cases with previous cutbacks in service or employees).
