Business-related tax filing deadlines extended in Md.

ANNAPOLIS, Md. – Comptroller Peter Franchot announced on Tuesday that he is extending business-related tax filing deadlines for a second time.

This new extension to July 15th applies to certain business returns with due dates during the months of February, March, April, and May 2020 for businesses filing sales and use tax, withholding tax, and admissions & amusement tax, as well as alcohol, tobacco, and motor fuel excise taxes, tire recycling fee, and bay restoration fee returns.

The deadline for June payments of the alcohol tax and admissions & amusement tax, which are due on the 10th day of the month, have also been extended to July 15th. Business taxpayers who file and pay by the extended due date will receive a waiver of interest and penalties.

The agency says they will continue to assess the pandemic’s effect on business operations and will determine if further changes are necessary.
