Millionaires in MD Beware

I don't know how many of our Blog readers in MD are Millionaires — probably a lot I would guess. Here's a recent development targeting you or your client:
 

Senate Bill 46, effective July 1, 2008, temporarily (yeah, right) increases the personal income tax rate for those with Maryland taxable income in excess of $1,000,000. For taxable years beginning after December 31, 2007, but before January 1, 2011, the Maryland personal income tax for an individual, including spouses filing a joint return or a surviving spouse or head of household, is 6.25%. Currently, the highest income tax rate is 5.5% and applies to individuals, spouses filing a joint return or a surviving spouse or head of household with Maryland taxable income in excess of $500,000. Those with a Maryland taxable income of $500,001 through $1,000,000 are taxed at the rate of 5.5% for taxable years beginning after December 31, 2007, and ending before January 1, 2011.

I guess MD, doesn't like high earning individuals living in their state.
