What everyone's paying in city property taxes, one by one
Baltimore's new release of government data at OpenBaltimore lets you see how much the owners of each property are paying without having to look it up one at a time at the city's property-tax lookup site.
It's a huge file, the sort requiring a database manager such as Access to analyze, but you can page through the display on the site itself and do some sorting there as well. Top amount: $4.3 million -- that's for an office tower. Lowest: thousands of $0s for religious, nonprofit and government properties.
Also at OpenBaltimore: parking fines, 311 calls and a lot more.

I'm not trying to make this a property-tax week, by the way. I'll have some completely non-tax-related topics for you soon.
