Hogan Announces $1 Billion Tax Relief to Retirees

January 17th, 2020 by WCBC Radio

The Retirement Tax Reduction Act of 2020 will cut retirement taxes for Marylanders by more than $1 billion over five years. This legislation will eliminate all state tax on the first $50,000 of income for retirees making up to $100,000 in federally adjusted gross income. Retirees with Maryland income up to $50,000 will pay no state tax whatsoever in the state of Maryland. Hogan says the cuts will gradually phased in
