Posted on March 15, 2021

Tax Alert 01-06-21 issued by the Comptroller of Maryland has extended due dates for certain tax types to assist individuals and businesses impacted economically by the Covid-19 pandemic. This is a similar extension to what was granted by the state of emergency issued by Governor Lawrence J. Hogan, Jr on March 5, 2020.

The new extensions will only apply to tax types handled by the Comptroller of Maryland with original filing and payment deadlines from January 1, 2021 through April 14, 2021. Below is a summary of tax types where these extended deadlines have been granted. The full Tax Alert issued by Comptroller, along with the detailed guidelines and qualifications for relief, can be located online at:

  • Sales and Use Taxes

Tips for the Taxpayer

In these uncertain times, it is important for businesses to be aware of opportunities for economic relief offered by state and local tax jurisdictions. If your company has experienced hardships during the Covid-19 pandemic, Allyn Tax recommends exploring potential relief being offered for state and local taxes, along with additional business taxes where your company may have liabilities.
