Maryland Board of Public Works Expected to Keep Property Taxes Flat

At its April 27 meeting, the Board of Public Works will set the state property tax rate for FY 2017. According to The Daily Record, the Board’s advisory group, the Commission on State Debt, has unanimously recommended that the tax rate remain flat – at the same 11.2 cents per $100 value for real property that has been in place for ten years.

Maryland’s Board of Public Works reviews projects, contracts, and expenditure plans for state agencies – many of which have effect on county governments. It meets on alternating Wednesdays and the meetings are open to the public.  The meeting will be held in Governor’s Reception Room on the 2nd floor of the State House in Annapolis.

The Board’s next meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, April 27, 2016 at 10 a.m. Material for the upcoming meeting is available online:
