To avoid the paper backlog, Governor Hogan and the Maryland Department of Assessments & Taxation are encouraging customers to complete transactions online. Government offices statewide remain closed to combat the spread of COVID-19 and processing of mailed-in documents will be significantly delayed this year.
The State of Maryland offers professional tax preparers a convenient online filing system through Maryland Business Express. With our popular designee functionality, professional tax preparers can share filings electronically for client approval. The client can then choose to pay for the filing(s) or return the filing electronically to the tax preparer for payment.
Additional benefits of using Maryland Business Express include:
- Ease: Prepare, review, approve, and submit filings directly to the Department of Assessments & Taxation within a single system. Annual Reports can be prepared for an unlimited number of businesses using a single user account.
- Speed: Filings are submitted instantly and directly into the SDAT’s system.
- Confidence: Receipt confirmations are received immediately after each filing is submitted.
- Accuracy: After the first filing year, historical data is automatically displayed to ensure accuracy.
