Sun’s Data Desk Profiles Hogan Tax Cut Proposals

The Baltimore Sun‘s recently launched “Data Desk” now features an interactive and graphically-driven look at the tax proposals offered by Governor Hogan during his State of the State address on February 4.

Visit the Sun’s Data Desk coverage of the tax proposals.

The Sun lists MACo as a “key stakeholder” on one of the proposals in particular, which seeks to reduce personal property taxes on small businesses, and substitute state assistance to offset the lost local tax revenues:

The Maryland Association of Counties and local governments may be wary of supporting a cut that directly reduces a reliable revenue stream and replaces it with a promise of state help.

The Governor’s legislation for these proposals (and others mentioned during the speech) is expected to be formally introduced in the coming days.
