State’s Highest Court Reverses Lower Court Decision that Struck Down Digital Ad Tax. Tthe Supreme Court of Maryland reversed the judgment of the Circuit Court for Anne Arundel County, which had struck down Maryland’s digital ad tax. The digital ad tax provides critical funding for Blueprint for Maryland’s Future, which is intended to transform Maryland’s education system to world-class student achievement levels. “I applaud the Supreme Court for acting quickly because the revenues generated by this tax will help us provide our children the best education possible for success,” said Attorney General Brown. “The digital ad tax will support our collective goal of transforming schools across the State. It will help level the playing field so that underserved communities will have access to quality educational opportunities enjoyed by our highest performing schools.”
