MTA sponsors Annapolis property tax limit petition....
Download petition here.
Annapolis city residents will be receiving petitions in the mail. By signing on, Annapolitans going to the polls in November will be able to vote for a property tax revenue limit. Since 2002, tax revenues more than doubled. This amendment would protect property owners in the city the same way they are protected in their county.
So...Annapolitans look for this petition in the mail. Door-to-door canvassers will also be out later. But don't wait, sign and send your petition as soon as your receive it. MTA notes that most, if not all, jurisdictions have been spending way beyond the incomes of Marylanders and the growth in the state's economy.
Only Annapolis city voters can sign the petition.
Mail it to:
City Tax Cap Petition Drive, c/o MD Taxpayers Association,
PO Box 6075, Annapolis, MD 21403.
