County Executive Steve Schuh Highlights 3% Property Tax Cut with County Residents
Crofton, MD (May 6, 2015) – County Executive Steve Schuh today sat down with a Crofton couple to discuss his $19 million, three percent property tax cut.
“This proposed tax reduction will put more money in the pockets of our citizens,” said Schuh.“ More importantly, it sends a strong message to the people of Anne Arundel County that the days of ever increasing taxes and fees are over.”
Sitting around the kitchen table of a local Crofton couple, the County Executive outlined the impact his budget brings in much needed tax relief to our citizens, especially seniors on fixed incomes. For a house assessed at a value of $350,000, taxpayers would see savings of approximately $1,000 over the next ten years.
The discussion took place at the home of Hugh and Lucille Seborg of Crofton. Hugh Seborg, an Air Force veteran, is a graduate of the US Naval Academy. He and his wife have lived in Crofton for 40 years.
Property taxes are a major contributor to the increasing burden of government on taxpayers. Despite the property tax revenue cap, property tax bills have increased at an average annual rate of 4 percent over the last 10 years.
The County Executive’s tax reduction plan is subject to approval by the County Council.
