Our country’s tax system is structured to benefit the wealthy and powerful few, while working families and small businesses carry the responsibility for the public services we all rely on, like good schools, transportation, and public health.
There are even deeper disparities in our tax system for women, people of color, and low-wealth communities. However, this is not just a federal issue.
Many of our state’s largest corporations and wealthiest individuals do not pay their fair share in state taxes. Some do not pay any states taxes at all. The wealthiest have gotten $4 billion wealthier during the country’s COVID-19 pandemic.
Sign this petition to tell your legislators that it’s time to clean up our tax code to make sure all Marylanders pay their fair share.
