Last year the General Assembly passed HB 732 which would implement a tax system for any ads placed on the internet.  This tax would increase the cost for a business to advertise using any digital platform.  Governor Hogan felt this bill was so harmful to Maryland businesses that he vetoed it.  If the General Assembly does not override the Governor’s veto, the process to tax internet advertising in Maryland will be underway.  The Chamber opposes any taxes on internet adverting.  Click HERE to see a copy of the letter the Chamber sent to the members of the House of Delegates from Anne Arundel County.
