Comptroller Announces Tax Payment Deadline Extension

Marylanders will have extra time to pay their state taxes before incurring interest or penalties. Comptroller Peter Franchot announced Tuesday that his office is pushing back the due date for business and individual income tax payments to July 15th.

From the press release:

“Right now, Maryland taxpayers and businesses must stay focused on their health and keeping their lights on, both in their homes and businesses,” Comptroller Franchot said. “Extending the due date for Maryland state individual and business income tax payments helps us keep cash flowing in our economy and into employees’ bank accounts.”

Taxpayers who take advantage of the federal extension to file their return, which is separate from the relief granted today to pay their taxes, will continue to be automatically granted an extension on their Maryland tax filings. No additional extension forms are required. Fiscal year filers with tax years ending January 1, 2020, through March 31, 2020, are also eligible for the July 15, 2020 extension.
