Commissioners oppose state tax breaks for military, first responders, elderly
Commissioners oppose state tax breaks for military, first
Board says cuts would hurt Carroll's revenue stream
Wiley Hayes, Times Staff Writer March 7, 2015
The Carroll County Board of Commissioners is unified in
opposition to several proposed tax cuts in the General Assembly that would
affect the retirement incomes of military personnel, first responders, the
elderly, the disabled and property taxes for small business.
Commissioner Richard Rothschild, R-District 4, said there
are three reasons why the board is against the bills.

incrementally to lessen the impact they would have on Carroll's revenue stream.
