Maryland Pushes Back Tax Deadline By 3 Months

Residents of the state of Maryland will have an extra three months to file and pay their 2021 state tax returns. The announcement was made by Comptroller Peter Franchot on Wednesday.

The new deadline will be Friday, July 15, 2022. The reason for the extension is to help taxpayers facing financial hardships from the COVID-19 pandemic.  Franchot released an official statement addressing the situation:

“Many people are still struggling to stay above water, so giving taxpayers more time to file and pay will hopefully ease their financial pressure. As we approach the two-year mark of the onset of COVID-19, my agency remains as committed as ever to helping Marylanders who still are feeling the pandemic’s impact.” – Peter Franchot 

This is the third consecutive year that Franchot has extended filing and payment deadlines.
