Taxes & Licensing
The Maryland Comptroller has extended the state income tax filing deadline by three months until July 15, 2021. No interest or penalties will be assessed if returns are filed and taxes owed are paid by the new deadline. The extension, which applies to individual, pass-through, fiduciary and corporate income tax returns, including first and second quarter estimated payments, is due to recent and pending legislation at the state and federal levels that impact 2020 tax filings and provide economic relief for taxpayers harmed by the COVID19 pandemic.

Licensing and Permitting
- The governor’s order authorizing the suspension of license and permitting expirations will sunset on June 30, 2021.

Agencies are explicitly authorized to conduct virtual hearings and meetings.
