The simple solution to city taxes [Letter]

February 12, 2014

There is a simple and elegant solution to the problem of Baltimore City's property tax rate ("New ideas for city taxes," Feb. 9). We live in the sovereign State of Maryland, and we should all pay the same property tax rate. One State, One Rate would benefit not only the residents of Baltimore City but also of many Maryland counties, likely including the majority of all Maryland citizens. It would the end the subsidization of rich counties by poorer counties.
