Maryland Online Hearing Appeal Request

Welcome to the Comptroller's Online Appeal Request system. As a Maryland taxpayer, you have the right to file an appeal if you are assessed a tax or fee, or assessed interest and penalty charges, or if you are denied a refund. If you get a notice from the Comptroller's Office and have questions, please call the phone number printed on the notice. A representative will help you determine what you need to do to resolve the issue.

If you still dispute the tax assessment or refund denial, you can file an appeal within 30 days of the mailing of the notice. The first step in the appeal process is an informal hearing.
