Take Action

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.

These corporate loopholes and tax giveaways to the wealthy have cost our state $2.8 billion in desperately needed revenue that could address existing gaps in services and provide relief for those impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Marylanders are counting on state services more than ever, and massive budget cuts would do
lasting harm to our economy. We can raise the revenue needed to rebound our state’s economy and provide necessary resources to families by closing the tax loopholes that allow big, profitable businesses and the wealthy to avoid paying their fair share.

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.
