As usual, The Sun gets it wrong on the real cost to homeowners of the "rain tax" ("The bogus 'rain tax' repeal," Nov. 24). According to the Sun's editorial board, the tax only costs about $39 a year for the typical Baltimore County homeowner. No big deal, right? Well, how about the residual costs that The Sun's editors conveniently leave out — like all the small businesses with parking lots for their customers who will pay a much higher rain tax, typically $1,000 to $5,000? And larger businesses like auto dealers or shopping centers and malls that will pay a rain tax in the tens of thousands of dollars — up to six figures in some cases.
