ANNAPOLIS, Md. — Comptroller Franchot extended the tax relief being offered to businesses impacted by severe storms on Wednesday that caused extensive damage in parts of Anne Arundel, Charles, and Montgomery counties, as well as other parts of Maryland. The extended due dates for a variety of tax and motor fuel payments for businesses and emergency responders now applies statewide.
“Although the tornado that hit Edgewater and Annapolis received most of the attention, it’s clear the remnants of Hurricane Ida left its mark in communities throughout Maryland, so we decided to give all businesses and emergency responders across the state more time to pay their monthly taxes,” Comptroller Franchot said.
The Comptroller’s Office is providing a waiver of interest and penalties for business taxpayers who are unable to meet the September filing deadlines for the following tax types so long as they report and pay the taxes due by the following dates:
Tax Type Due Date: Paid By:
Sales & Use September 20 October 20
Admission & Amusement September 10 October 10
Withholding September 15 October 15
Alcohol (depending on type) September 10, 15, 20, 25 October 10, 15, 20, 25
Maryland Motor Fuel Tax license holders in Maryland are granted a waiver of interest and penalties to licensees who file and pay by October 31, 2021. Certain IFTA (International Fuel Tax Agreement) requirements are also temporarily waived for shippers and carriers of essential emergency relief supplies, or to those that are providing restoration of utilities to the affected area.
