No taxpayer subsidies for T. Rowe Price move

T. Rowe Price

No matter what T. Rowe Price decides to do when its lease runs out, city taxpayers should not be penalized with tax concessions for the firm's employees, many of whom do not reside in Baltimore ("T. Rowe Price considers moving its headquarters," April 25).

If the firm wants to move, so be it. If it wants to stay, that's great too. But we can no longer subsidize companies every time they decide to move.

The citizens of this city are overburdened with taxes as it is. Either a firm wants to be a corporate member of our city or it doesn't. Either way, we'll respect their decision — just as long as they don't try to hold us up in the process.
