Maryland extends some tax filing deadlines to June 1, 2020
The Comptroller of Maryland recently announced that Maryland will extend business-related tax filing and payment deadlines to June 1, 2020. The tax filing and payment extension applies to certain business tax returns with deadlines in March, April, and May for business entities filing the following types of returns:
- Sales and use tax
- Withholding tax
- Admissions and amusement tax
- Alcohol, tobacco, and motor fuel excise taxes
- Tire recycling fee
- Bay restoration fee
Interest and penalties will be waived for those who file and pay by the extended due date.
According to the Comptroller’s release, Maryland also will conform to whatever the IRS decides regarding the April 15 filing deadline for corporate and individual income tax returns.
Businesses can send extension-related questions to firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Comptroller’s Ombudsman at 410.260.4020.
