Attorney General Frosh Announces Legal Challenge to Trump Administration’s Tax Bill
BALTIMORE, MD (February 1, 2018) – Maryland Attorney General Brian E. Frosh today announced that the State of Maryland will file suit challenging the constitutionality of the Trump Administration’s tax bill, H.R. 1. Along with other states, Maryland will challenge the bill’s $10,000 federal cap on state and local property and income taxes deductions.
“By eliminating the SALT deductions, Trump’s tax bill will jack up taxes for more than half a million Marylanders,” said Attorney General Frosh. “It is an attack on state sovereignty and an attempt to cripple our ability to educate our kids, protect the Chesapeake Bay, and build the infrastructure that Maryland needs to be competitive in the world economy.”
