In the aftermath of a tornado ravaging parts of Edgewater and Annapolis on Wednesday afternoon, Comptroller Peter Franchot today announced extended due dates for a variety of tax and motor fuel payments for businesses and emergency responders in Anne Arundel County affected by the storm.
Additionally, Maryland Motor Fuel Tax license holders in Anne Arundel County have a one-month extension to file their August 2021 motor fuel tax returns; they are now due by October 31, 2021. A waiver of interest and penalties will be granted to licensees who file and pay by the new due date. Certain IFTA (International Fuel Tax Agreement) requirements are also temporarily waived for shippers and carriers of essential emergency relief supplies, or to those that are providing restoration of utilities to the affected area.
Anne Arundel County businesses with questions about motor fuel extensions can email Chuck Elm at firstname.lastname@example.org. For other tax-related questions, individuals may call 410-260-7980 (from Central Maryland) or 1-800-MD-TAXES, or email email@example.com.
