Revised business tax extension. Maryland business-related tax returns that are due in the months of February, March, April, and May 2020, are now extended to July 15, 2020 (previously, the extension was set for June 1, 2020). The July 15, 2020, extension applies to:

  • sales and use;
  • withholding;
  • admissions & amusement;
  • alcohol, tobacco, and motor fuel excise taxes;
  • tire recycling fee; and
  • bay restoration fees.

Extension for first and second quarter estimated income taxes. The payment due date for quarterly estimated income tax payments for the period ending March 31, 2020, is generally April 15, 2020. Due to the state of emergency, the due date is extended to July 15, 2020. Additionally, the due date for estimated income tax payments for the second quarter of 2020, originally due on June 15, 2020, is extended to July 15, 2020.
