Talk of Maryland reviving an expired tax on people making $1 million or more has stirred quite a frenzy. It comes as the state faces criticism for high taxes, an exodus of millionaires, and one of the nation's highest rankings when it comes to jobs lost in recent months. Regardless of whether those dots do or don't connect, the millionaires' tax concept has struck a vein.
We put it to a poll on Yahoo! Finance on Friday (Add your vote on the Y! Finance homepage), and the results show conflicting sentiments. We asked: "Should people making more than a million dollars a year be subject to extra taxes?" So far 55% of responding readers say no, and 45% say yes. (Thoughts?
