Public safety employees and volunteer firefighters in Baltimore County would get annual property tax credits under a proposal being considered by the County Council. A bill introduced this week by Republican Wade Kach of Cockeysville would apply to police officers, emergency medical technicians, sheriff’s deputies, correctional officers and both professional and volunteer firefighters who live in the county. They would get up to a $1,500 discount next year on property taxes, up to $2,000 in 2020 and up to $2,500 in 2021. Kach said the county should pass the legislation to stay competitive with others in the Baltimore area.
