    6,000 Marylanders say “No new taxes”
     
    We’re proud to share that more than 6,100 Marylanders have signed the Marylanders For Tax Fairness petition – all committed to stopping another tax on our state’s job creators at the worst possible time. 
     
    Getting Maryland legislators to change their minds on this issue is critical, but we have to keep up the pressure to let them know that legislation that will increase costs for every single person and business that advertises services online—from the smallest mom-and-pop to the largest corporation, is unacceptable.

    3. Share your support / encourage others to do the same on social media

    Now more than ever, the voices of Maryland’s job creators are critical.
