A Tax Cut for 2014?

As reported in the Washington Post, House Speaker Michael E. Busch is considering a tax cut initiative as part of his goals for the next legislative session, which will begin in January 2014.  According to the Post, the Speaker did not provide specifics,

He allowed only that the relief should be targeted to “working and middle-class families, who have borne the brunt of the recession.”

“It could take many forms,” Busch said.

Speaker Busch noted improvements in the state’s economy and the planned opening of two major casinos in Maryland: one in Baltimore in 2014, and another in Prince George’s in 2016 in his discussion about taxes.
