The Maryland Transit Administration (MTA) has announced that it has extended the period for the four chosen concessionaires to submit their bids for constructing and maintaining the Purple Line from January 9th to March 12th, 2015 in order to give Governor-elect Larry Hogan time to assess the project after his inauguration on January 21st. Although the bid date has been backed up, the MTA insists that the project construction timeline has not changed and construction will still begin in late 2015 if the new governor allows it to go forward.

MILLER, MILLER & CANBY LITIGATORS SUCCESSFULLY CHALLENGE MONTGOMERY COUNTY 'RAIN TAX'

Miller, Miller & Canby attorneys James L. Thompson and Diane E. Feuerherd successfully challenged Montgomery County’s calculation of the Water Quality Protection Charge, also known as the “rain tax”, on behalf of a commercial property owner with multiple properties in the area. 

The rain tax, which is administered by the County’s Department of Environmental Protection (“DEP”), is a new line item included on the property tax bills of a majority of commercial property owners.  In 2012, the Maryland General Assembly enacted legislation directing the County to collect the rain tax in an amount that is based on the County’s share of stormwater management services provided to the property, but also to credit the property owner for the investment in private stormwater management facilities on the property.

NEW MARYLAND PROPERTY TAX ASSESSMENTS DEADLINE TO APPEAL IS MID-FEBRUARY 2015

Every three years, one-third of the residential and commercial properties in Maryland are reassessed for property tax purposes. The assessments are staggered and rotate geographically within each county. For example, in Montgomery County, commercial properties located in Rockville and Gaithersburg will receive new notices of assessment for 2015. In Frederick County, commercial properties in Thurmont, Emmitsburg and parts of the City of Frederick will receive new assessment notices. In Prince George’s County, notices will be sent to commercial properties in Temple Hills, Capitol Heights, District Heights, Clinton, Suitland, Lanham, Landover and Bladensburg.

ARE YOU KEEPING YOUR ESTATE PLAN UP TO DATE?

Many people sign their estate planning documents, file them away and forget about them. As things change in our lives or as tax laws change, these estate planning documents may become outdated. For example, people who are appointed for important positions, such as successor personal representatives or trustees, or as guardians, may no longer be able to serve. In some cases, provisions for children may no longer meet the children's needs or the intended desires for the estate plan. Estate plans must be updated and maintained to stay current and relevant.
