FOR MARYLAND BUSINESSES:  To keep your company in good standing, Maryland requires you to file an Annual Report and Personal Property Tax Return (“Annual Report”) which is typically due April 15th. However, starting in 2018, Maryland SDAT will no longer send out copies of the Annual Report or postcards reminding businesses to file.  Instead, businesses may sign-up on SDAT’s list-serve to receive reminders. However, the Annual Report is due regardless of whether you received any prior notice. MDSDAT Subscriber For more information Click Here.
