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:

The iFile applications have been updated to reflect the new extended due date of July 15th, 2020 for 2019 filing of returns and income tax payments.

For 2nd Quarter Estimated Payments previously submitted and taxpayers who would like to change to the new extended date, you first have to cancel, then add:
You are able to remove individual estimated payments through the iFile application with a status of pending that have not been selected for processing. Payments are selected for processing two days prior to the payment date. They can be deleted by selecting 'View History of estimated payments filed via this system' from the main Personal Estimated Payment Filing screen. You can then select the confirmation number of the payment you would like to remove and select 'cancel this return' located above the Survey button near the bottom of the screen. After that, you can add the payment again with a new payment date.

 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.
