In articles published Sunday and Thursday in the Howard County edition of The Sun, the impact of a local income tax increase from a rate of 2.45 percent to the legal limit of 3.20 percent on a taxpayer with a $100,000 net income was incorrect. An income tax increase of that magnitude would cost a resident with that income an extra $750 a year. In addition, a 10.25-cent increase in the county's property tax rate would cost the owner of a house worth $200,000 an extra $205.

Also yesterday, an incorrect photo of Joshua Leland Siegert accompanied a report about his death in a car crash. The correct photo appears with a follow-up article on this page.

The Sun regrets the errors.
