Maryland is going to start what they are calling a "Rain Tax"
. The tax will be based on how much hard or impervious surfaces you have on your property. Roofs, patios, driveways, ect.. any surface that prevents rain water from being absorbed into the ground. They are going to use satellite photos to figure how many sq. feet of hard surface and tax according to that. I feel sorry for those people stuck there. I bailed out of Maryland about three years ago, but I still have my shop there. If rent goes up to much because of this I guess I'll be moving my business as well. Between this "Rain Tax" and the new 22 cents added gas tax, Maryland is going to become a ghost town to business.
