COVID-19 Resources For Businesses

On March 12, Governor Hogan issued an executive order that requires the Maryland State Department of Assessments and Taxation (SDAT) extend all expiration and renewal dates to the 30th day after the date on which the state of emergency is terminated. SDAT is automatically extending the Annual Report Filing and/or Personal Property Return filing date from April 15 to July 15th for all entities, although it may take a few days for this to be reflected online. SDAT will soon provide additional information related to the delay of due dates for trade name renewals/expirations, penalty due dates, and any other related items.
