O’Malley’s “Flush Tax” Could Triple for Some Customers

January 28th, 2012 by WCBC Radio

New changes have been reported surrounding Governor Martin O'Malley's "Flush Tax." According to WBAL News, families who who consume more than 8-thousand gallons a year would be charged triple if they fall under the "high end user" heading. An annual bill would go from $30 to over $100 under the new changes. Homes using under 2-thousand gallons a month would see their flush tax go down by $0.70 a month. The revenues from the levy are meant to go toward efforts to clean up the Cheseapeake Bay, including waste water plant upgrades.
