Editor's note—In Hanrahan v. Alterman, 41 Md. App. 71, 396 A.2d 272 (1979), it was held that art. 33 of the Annotated Code of Maryland is inapplicable to special taxing districts. Special tax districts are not municipal corporations, and do not have unlimited powers to sue and be sued, as do municipal corporations under article 23A of the Annotated Code of Maryland. Friendship Heights v. Funger, 265 Md. 339, 289 A.2d 329 (1972).
