Spotlight on Maryland

Welcome to the Comptroller of Maryland's Internet tax filing system. This system allows online electronic filing of resident personal income tax returns along with the most commonly associated schedules and forms.
Important Notice:
NOTE: We stop processing returns and payments each year during our annual cut over period from late December to mid - January. Any debits for back year Individual Tax returns (2017 or 2016) and Estimated payments for Tax Year 2018 scheduled from 12/26/18 to 1/9/2019 may experience a delay in processing. These debits will not be considered late or charged any penalties. We plan to begin processing back year Individual Tax returns and 2018 Estimated payments on 1/10/2019.

Our opening date to file your 2018 Individual Tax return will be January 28, 2019, the same day the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) begins accepting returns. Note: If the IRS experiences delays, this could also delay our opening date. When we resume our normal processing, the online supporting tax years will be for 2018, 2017, and 2016, and for estimated payments tax year 2019.

 What you will need to get started:
  • A completed federal return. You will need information from your federal return in order to complete your Maryland return. If you wish to electronically file your federal income tax return, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has entered into agreements with several private companies to provide free electronic filing of federal returns. Some of the companies are including State returns as well. Visit the IRS Free File web page to see if you qualify.
