U.S. Supreme Court May Consider “Piggyback Tax” Case

According to the Washington Post, the U.S. Supreme Court may hear a case against Maryland’s “piggyback tax.” In Maryland, tax paid in other states is deductible for state taxes but not for city and local jurisdictional taxes. The Maryland Court of Appeals found the law unconstitutional, citing that it violates the commerce clause. Maryland has appealed the case to the U.S. Supreme Court, and recently the Court requested the Obama administration’s views on the matter.
