For all my io9 family not from Maryland, July 1 brought a whole host of new taxes: bottle tax from 2 to 5 cents, gasoline up 3.5 cents, bay bridge toll from 4 to 6 dollars, water & sewer up 15%. Now if that's not enough to make you want to leave charm city, we have, what I believe is a country first - RAIN TAX! That's right, rain tax. Depending on the square footage of your house and drive way, you will pay an additional tax to the state for storm water runoff that goes into the Chesapeake Bay.

Any crazy taxes where you live?
