Because as far as I can tell it's not based in any way with how much rain actually falls on you property. It's based on how much "impervious surfaces" you have on your property. So you could call it a pavement tax if you wanted.
It's a tax to pay for dealing with storm runoff, something every community has to do, based on how much storm runoff is likely to come from your property.
Or are you an expert on Maryland environmental laws also?
