Submitted by Mr. C
Mr. C (666) writes "The Maryland Senate added an ammendment to the tax code during a special session which imposes a 6% Service tax on all computer related services and activities effective Jan 1. The Budget and Taxation Committee scrapped the expansion to real property management services and tanning, massage, physical fitness, sauna, or steam bath facilities or services that would have generated an estimated $60 million. They replaced those services with computer services, landscaping and arcades, which will generate an estimated $300 million. The bill is facing some flak in the Senate but it's going largely unnoticed by the public since the new industries that are targeted were given no warning about the language which was inserted Wednesday. amendment (pdf)"

  • Shove extras into a bill at the last minute and "forget" to tell anyone so that by the time the public knows its too late.

    "services" shouldnt be taxed. That will just drive more people away from their state. Over taxation has a net effect of reducing peoples purchasing power, and reducing the numbers of people that do business there, thus less revenue overall.

    Idiots, wont they ever learn?
