I testified at the Queen Anne's County Commissioners Budget/Constant Yield Hearing last night at the Liberty Building in Centreville. I asked the Commissioners to give the taxpayers of Queen Anne's County a $100 raise this next year by reducing the county's (piggy back) income tax rate by 1/2 of .1 off the current rate of 3.2%. This would provide the 50,000+ residents of Queen Anne's County about a $100 reduction each in their annual income taxes paid to the county and reduce revenue to the county by about $500,000 next year. The Commissioners increased the income tax rate to the maximum allowed by state law (3.2%) when financial times were tough due to dramatically reduced property values. However, this year it led to a windfall in income tax revenues and the county will close out this fiscal year (ending June 30) with a multi-million dollar surplus. I believe that when government collects much more than it planned in tax revenues - it should give some back to the citizens who pay the bills. While the Commissioners are facing lots of pent up demands and requests to spend this money on "worthy" causes - I think the most worthy cause is to remember the hard working taxpayers and let them share in the surplus.
