What about Maryland's 'rain tax'?

April 15, 2013

In your recent article praising the accomplishments of our governor and this year's legislative session you conveniently omitted the failure to delay implementation of the new "rain tax" that will be assessed on most residents ("Session ends in flurry of votes," April 9).

This tax will amount to at least $100 on property tax bills in many jurisdictions. Satellite pictures of your property will be used to determine a resident's assessment.

Not only is "Big Brother" watching you, but now he is taxing you for what he sees. What's next on the government's agenda?
