The deadline was extended from April 15 to July 15.
Annapolis, Md. (NS) – There is not much time left to get your 2021 Maryland state income taxes done.
Comptroller Peter Franchot said the extended deadline to file is Friday, July 15. If you cannot pay by the deadline, he said reach out to the Comptroller’s Office.
“The main thing is just to alert us. We’re very quick to respect, respond, get results for the tax payer. We’re not going to get blood from a stone. We’re not the IRS. We will put people on very liberal payment plans,” said Franchot.
He said the deadline was extended to help Marylanders who are battling high inflation, but more financial strain could be coming.
“I just want to encourage everybody to be careful as far as their financial situation because we’re obviously dealing with the fact that the Federal Reserve is increasing interest rates and that sometimes leads to a recession if we’re not careful. That’s why I’m advocating relief,” he added.
Although he will not be Comptroller in 2023, Franchot said there may be another deadline delay next year if inflation is still high.
