    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Tax revolt! Cab and limo drivers are firing back at the city of Baltimore, refusing to pay a new per-passenger tax that started last month—but city officials say they need the money.

    That tax–which started October 1—would charge 25 extra cents per passenger.

    Many cab and limo company owners say they were blindsided.

    Cab and limousine drivers are putting the brakes on a new city tax.

    “We can’t pay this tax. It’s simply not possible,” said Mark Thistel, the owner of FreedomCar.

    “We can’t pay this tax. It’s simply not possible,”

    And what else can you actually buy/pay for with 25¢ in 2013? :rolleyes:
