Supreme Court strikes down Maryland double-tax law, other states could feel revenue pinch

May 19, 2015

The Supreme Court on Monday struck down a Maryland tax that effectively double-taxes residents for income earned in other states — a decision that could cost Maryland and other states with similar policies hundreds of millions of dollars.

In a 5-4 ruling, the justices agreed with a lower court that the tax is unconstitutional because it discourages Maryland residents from earning money outside the state.

“Maryland’s tax scheme is inherently discriminatory,” the justices wrote in the majority opinion. They wrote that the policy effectively discourages “interstate commerce.”

    Maryland progressive unconstitutional democrats say “Ask not what your country can do for you, we already think we know and will try to force you to comply.”

    I don’t know what these states are doing but I don’t like the idea to be taxed twice on money made but I do see that those who work in another state does get the service of the state they live in something should be worked out. meh
