FAQ: Transportation Investment Act

What is the Transportation Infrastructure Investment Act of 2013?

The Transportation Infrastructure Investment Act of 2013 increases transportation funding, to the state’s transportation trust fund, through various means including a motor fuel tax increase. Effective July 1, 2013, there will be additional motor fuel taxes on all motor fuels except aviation gasoline and turbine fuel. The additional taxes adjust for inflation using the CPI and also a percentage of the average retail price of gasoline. Other fees are also increased in this act but are not enforced by the Comptroller of Maryland.
