Maryland will stop processing paper income tax returns beginning on Friday, April 15, based on a statement by Maryland Comptroller Peter Franchot. The move has been motivated by a desire to keep employees safe in the era of COVID-19. Taxpayers anticipating a refund from their taxes and who plan to paper file are encouraged to file by April 10 to ensure their return will be processed in a timely manner.
Marylanders are encouraged to file electronically, since it takes just over two days to process an electronic return and 22 days to process a paper return. Additionally, due to recent legislation, Tax Day has been extended to July 15.
Information on how to file for taxes online can be found on the Comptroller of Maryland’s website.
