To assist individuals and businesses affected by the economic impact of COVID-19, Maryland Comptroller Peter Franchot has announced that Maryland will follow the federal 90-day extension of the April 15 deadline for income tax payments. If the 2019 tax payments are made by July 15, 2020, Maryland will not charge interest or late penalties.
Previously, Maryland had announced an extension for businesses filing sales and use tax, withholding tax, admissions and amusement tax, excise tax, tire recycling fee and bay restoration fee returns during the months of March, April and May. The deadline for businesses filing these returns has been extended to June 1.
As work is done to mitigate the economic effects of the coronavirus, there are ongoing developments. We will continue to monitor the situation closely and provide updates as they are made available.
