BALTIMORE (WBFF) - An estimated 172,000 Marylanders are being impacted by the government shutdown.
According to the Maryland Comptroller’s office, that’s resulting in $778 million in lost wages every two weeks.
Comptroller Peter Franchot added the loss is subsequently impacting Maryland’s economy.
Franchot estimates Maryland is losing $58 million in state and local income tax revenue, as well as more than $2 million in sales tax revenue.
The Comptroller’s office has said it will waive penalties and payments for overdue taxes for those impacted by the shutdown.
“We’re not eliminating them," said Franchot. “We’re saying we’ll give you a break.”
