In September 1987, the Governor's Commis-
sion on State Taxes and Tax Structure was ap-
pointed by the Governor.
The Commission is determining the basis for a
new, improved correlation between the imposition
and distribution of revenues and the general well-
being of Maryland's citizens.
The Commission is to provide a complete anal-
ysis of Maryland's economic growth trends, the tax
structure, intergovernmental finance system, and
other related fiscal issues. The Commission also will
devise mechanisms that create stable and predict-
able State and local government revenues and en-
sure that all jurisdictions have an ability to achieve
and maintain excellence in government services. In
addition, the Commission is to fashion an under-
standable system of taxation for the citizens of
Maryland and recommend legislation to implement
its equitable, statewide application.
Brief annual interim reports, including an in-
terim report released in January 1989, are to be
submitted by the Commission before its final report
is due in December 1990.
