Coalition to fight changes to the Baltimore property tax law

By meerna Jun12,2024

A coalition of labor unions, activist groups and city officials are joining forces to fight a ballot amendment that would cap and lower Baltimore City’s property tax rate.

A group called Renew Baltimore is proposing a plan to go to voters in the form of a November charter amendment that — spread over seven years — would reduce the property tax rate by about 46% before the rate is then capped.
