An Annapolis City Tax Cap ballot measure did not appear on the November 3, 2009 in Anne Arundel County for voters in the City of Annapolis.[1] Supporters failed to collect enough signatures.[2]

The tax cap proposition would have limited annual tax increases to 4.5% or the rate of inflation, whichever was lowest. Anne Arundel County at the time had a tax cap. In the county the average household property taxes increased by 8 percent since 2002. However, in Annapolis - where there currently is no limit on annual property tax increases - property tax rates have gone up by 43% since 2002.


  • Brian Gill of Red Maryland supports the cap.

Path to the ballot

To qualify the measure for the November 2009 ballot, supporters were required to obtain signatures from 20% of registered voters. In Annapolis, that amounted to about 5,000 signatures. Supporters failed to collect sufficient signatures.
