Rain Tax

Did you know you could see as much as a 25% increase in your Howard County property tax?

In 2012 the Maryland General Assembly mandated the ten counties--including ours--and Baltimore City enact a tax that will treat rain as a pollutant.

Can you believe it? Taxing rain!! An all new low in tax policy even for the State of Maryland.

This costly new mandate will hurt you, your farms and other businesses in Howard County. What's worse, Howard County stands to have the highest in the State.

This tax has not been properly thought through. There is no understanding of how funds collected from the Rain Tax will be used by Howard County Government.

Councilman Greg Fox is trying to introduce a bill to greatly lessen the tax's impact on YOU!!

A hearing on this issue is scheduled for Monday, June 3rd at 7 p.m. in the County Council Chambers.
