Here is a study released by WalletHub based on political opinions on the fairness of taxes in each state. Maryland Ranks 9 overall in tax fairness, 9 according to liberals, and 17 according to conservatives. Not bad. Listening to some here, you'd think Maryland was dead last.

Interesting since this study from the same group lists MD as the 9th worst as to tax burden:

The best and worst US states for taxpayers#.

I guess the takeaway is that the taxes are fair, just higher than 40 other states.

Well one study is based off of individual perceptions of fairness, the other off of hard numbers without human opinion. Apparently some people in Maryland feel that their tax burden is fair enough for them. Mostly liberals though. Surprise surprise. Conservatives of course felt otherwise but not so far toward the opposite of the spectrum. They still feel that Maryland falls in the top 20 as far as tax fairness.
