Taxpayers are urged to file their Maryland state income tax returns electronically, including the use of direct deposit for refunds. Taxpayers also can email their questions to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1-800-MD-TAXES for help weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. (extended hours during tax season remain in effect), according to a Comptroller's Office press release.
In recent days, as citizens and small business owners cope with the state of emergency, Comptroller Peter Franchot (D) announced several deadline extensions for income, corporate and business tax payments:
• April 15 – Filing deadline for federal income tax or to file a federal extension. No separate Maryland extension is necessary if you file a federal extension.
• June 1 – Returns and payments are due for Maryland business-related taxes not collected in March, April and May including sales and use tax, withholding tax, and admissions & amusement tax, alcohol tax, tobacco tax and motor fuel tax, as well as tire recycling fee and bay restoration fee returns.
• July 15 – Deadline for Maryland individual, corporate, pass through entity and fiduciary income tax payments, as well as March quarterly estimated payments.
• October 15 - Deadline for filing Maryland income tax returns if a federal extension was filed.
