Tax Troubles

Baltimore's ailing tax system has accidentally credited some homeowners with more than they should have and, after an investigative piece in the Baltimore Sun, the city is now requiring them to pay up within 30 days. Some of them didn't actually know they were getting away with anything for years, but now owe thousands of dollars in back taxes and have only a few weeks to come up with the money in order to avoid penalties (or try to dispute the request through the courts). While they're at it Baltimore would also like your lunch money. [BaltSun/image:Shutterstock]
