Maryland’s gas tax holiday expires at 11:59 p.m. on Saturday with no plan for an extension. The tax relief had previously helped with the “financial burden of taxpayers,” according to the Maryland taxes website. The 30-day gas tax bill was initially signed by Maryland Governor Larry Hogan on March 18, according to a press release by the state’s comptroller Peter Franchot.
Maryland is the first state in the nation to pass bipartisan legislation to suspend the gas tax. Instead of just arguing about who is to blame for higher gas prices, we put politics aside and worked together to take immediate action to help Marylanders with the pain at the pump. pic.twitter.com/1k11ZlkqL5
