WHAT: Comptroller Franchot will dedicate the state’s Annapolis Data Center in honor of retired Deputy Comptroller Linda L. Tanton. Mrs. Tanton, a Baltimore City resident, retired from the agency in December 2012 after more than 35 years of exemplary state service including six years as Maryland’s Deputy Comptroller. During her tenure as Deputy Comptroller, she positioned the agency as a national leader in taxpayer service, tax fairness and technology innovation.
Called a trailblazer, Tanton was the first woman to ever head the Comptroller’s Compliance Division and the first woman to serve as Deputy Comptroller. Thanks to her leadership, the agency recaptured more than $2 billion in uncollected tax liabilities from January 2007- December 2012.
