Comptroller extends tax return deadline for storm-damaged businesses

Howard County businesses that were damaged during Saturday's historic flood have an extra 30 days to file business tax returns due in August.

Businesses have until Sept. 19 to file tax returns due this month, Maryland Comptroller Peter Franchot announced Monday. The extension includes sales and use tax, withholding tax and admissions and amusement tax. Penalties and interest will be waived for taxpayers who file and pay by the extended due date.

"We want to assure businesses affected by the storms that we're here to be of assistance if they have special needs," Franchot said in the announcement.

Business owners who need other types of help or additional time to file can call Karen Scheerer or Mariella Cruz in the office of the Comptroller's Ombudsmen at 410-260-4020.
