Miller to Propose Amnesty for Delinquent Md. Taxpayers
Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller Jr. (D-Calvert) will announce Wednesday that he is sponsoring legislation calling for an amnesty for deliquent taxpayers who pay the income and payroll taxes that they owe, aides to the Senate leader said.
The tax amnesty bill will be the centerpiece of a legislative agenda that includes several environmental initiatives and another one that would promote more transparency in government, they said.
It's been several years since Miller submitted a legislative package to the General Assembly.
Maryland last had an amnesty program in 2000. Del. Brian J. Feldman (D), chairman of Montgomery County's delegation to the House of Delegates, is sponsoring a similar bill, showing lawmakers' zeal this year to tap untapped sources of revenue to boost the state treasury.
