Coalition of Maryland Business Organizations to Hold “Drive-In” and Joint Press Conference in Opposition to HB 1628 

WATCH THE PRESS CONFERENCE HERE

ANNAPOLIS, MD – A coalition of Maryland business organizations will hold a “drive-in” and joint press conference in opposition to HB 1628: Sales Tax on Services on Monday, March 2. The press conference will begin promptly at 11 a.m. The hearing on HB 1628 is scheduled to take place before the House Ways & Means Committee at 1 p.m., just after the press conference.  HB 1628 would result in a massive tax increase of $2.6 billion for Marylanders, the largest single tax increase in Maryland history. This piece of legislation would lower the sales tax from 6% to 5% but would expand that 5% sales tax to everyday services that have never been taxed before: legal services, accounting services, realtor services, home improvement, auto services and gym memberships—just to name a few.

WHAT: Joint Press Conference to declare opposition to HB 1628
WHO: Coalition of Maryland Business Organizations (listed below)
