House Panels Move Hogan’s Relief Proposal, With Substantial Changes

February 11, 2021

The Maryland House of Delegates tacked on additional revisions to Gov. Lawrence J. Hogan Jr.’s (R) billion-dollar COVID-19 relief proposal, including a large expansion to the Earned Income Tax Credit. Under the House proposal, the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) would see the largest single increase in Maryland history, House Majority Leader Eric G. Luedkte (D-Montgomery) said. The proposal would increase the state’s match to the federal EITC for taxpayers with dependents from 28% to 45% for three years, making Maryland the largest EITC refunder in the country.
