Hogan for Maryland Sends Open Letter to County Executive Alsobrooks Urging Her to Reverse Support for New Taxes and Fees

Hogan for Maryland today sent an open letter to County Executive Angela Alsobrooks calling on the candidate to reverse her support for the new taxes and fees that went into effect this week.

“The burden of these regressive taxes and fees will be paid by the struggling Marylanders who can least afford them. With Maryland families already facing the unaffordable cost of living, this is the last thing they need right now,” Governor Hogan wrote in part. “This is not a Democratic or Republican issue. This is about doing the right thing for Maryland. The affordability crisis impacts everyone in our state. At this critical time, Marylanders deserve leaders who are willing to stand up to the party bosses to fight for them. That is what I will always do, and I hope you will join me in that fight.”

On Monday, Governor Hogan spoke to WBFF about what these 338 new taxes and fees mean for Maryland families and businesses.

Examples of some of the taxes and fees passed in 2023 and 2024 include:

  • A 60% to 75% increase on car registration that could hike the cost of buying a used vehicle by thousands of dollars
  • Fees on barbers and salons
  • Tax on paint cans
  • Tax on Uber rides
  • Increases in fees for cosmetologists, electricians, and plumbers and apprenticeships
  • A fee for changing your address
