Maryland Opens Filing for 2018 Personal Property Tax Extensions
December 15, 2017
Established businesses--those created prior to December 1, 2017--may now request an extension on the 2018 Personal Property Tax return—two months earlier than in past years.
Unless an extension is requested, all domestic and foreign entities must file these documents on or before April 16 to remain in “good standing” and legally operate in the state. More than a decade ago, SDAT began accepting extension requests online and now less than two dozen requests are submitted using the paper form. Therefore, beginning in 2018 the Department will only accept extension requests submitted through the online extension system.
If a business was recently created, that new entity cannot request an extension now and will still need to wait until February 1 to access the portal to make that request,
