Individual Payment

You can pay your Maryland taxes with a personal check, money order or credit card. You may also choose to pay by direct debit when you file electronically. If you file and pay electronically by April 15, you have until April 30 to make the electronic payment, using direct debit or a credit card. Electronic payment options eliminate postage costs, the potential for lost mail and possible penalties for late payments.

If you have an existing tax liability, you may be able to pay online. You can also use our income tax interest calculator to figure the interest on your unpaid Maryland tax.

If you are unable to pay the full amount due, you should still file a return and request a payment arrangement. We will process your return and then send you an income tax notice for the remaining balance due for nonpayment of taxes.

Maryland is a pay as you earn state. Avoid penalties, interest, fees and any adverse collection actions by making sure your tax is properly withheld and/or pay estimated taxes to insure you don't owe at the end of the year.
