Maryland Governor Vetoes Digital Ad Tax

Maryland Governor Larry Hogan has vetoed a bill that would have imposed a new tax on digital ad revenue.

“With our state in the midst of a global pandemic and economic crash, and just beginning on our road to recovery, it would be unconscionable to raise taxes and fees now,” he stated Thursday. “To do so would further add to the very heavy burden that our citizens are already facing.”

State lawmakers can override the veto by a three-fifths vote. When the bill passed in March, the vote was 89-45 in the House, and 30-15 in the Senate.
