Comptroller Urges Maryland Taxpayers to E-File for Quick Refunds; Provides Checklist to Help Prevent Errors
Annapolis, Md. – With the tax-filing deadline less than a month away, Comptroller Peter Franchot encouraged taxpayers who have yet to file to take advantage of all the conveniences of electronic filing.
“I want to encourage all taxpayers to file electronically,” Comptroller Franchot said. “It is the best way to ensure a quick refund and allows taxpayers who owe money to delay payment until April 30.”
To date, more than 1.24 million taxpayers have filed their personal tax returns electronically with more than 48,000 filing via paper. Based on 3.04 million returns filed last year, the returns filed so far represent 42 percent of last year’s total.
