“This has been an unprecedented year with numerous changes impacting the current year’s tax code during tax filing season,” Comptroller Franchot said. “Maryland extended our tax filing season longer than any other state in the nation because we recognize these changes, coupled with the ongoing impact of the pandemic, would impact taxpayers’ ability to file on time and to pay what is owed.”

The extended deadline applies to individual, fiduciary, and corporate income tax returns including first and second quarter estimated payments.
