Maryland surpasses 1 million tax returns processed so far….

Comptroller Peter Franchot has announced that his office has processed more than one million individual income tax returns for tax year 2018. The one-millionth electronic return was submitted by a Frederick County tax filer.

As of Thursday morning, more than 1.1 million electronic and paper returns have been processed, with almost 95 percent of those being electronically filed. Comptroller Franchot has long encouraged Marylanders to e-file because it’s the most secure and efficient way to submit a tax return. Most Marylanders who file electronically receive their state refunds within three business days.

“The hardworking staff in the Comptroller’s Office processes thousands of state tax returns each and every day,” Comptroller Franchot said. “They’re focused on preventing tax cheats from stealing fraudulent refunds and ensuring honest taxpayers receive their hard-earned money as quickly as possible.”

LISTEN TO OUR INTERVIEW WITH THE COMPTROLLER:

Through the years of public outreach by the Comptroller’s Office, the number of electronic returns processed has steadily increased. Last year, the Comptroller’s office processed more than 2.7 million returns electronically. Electronic filers represented about 85 percent of the 3.2 million personal income tax returns filed last year.

The filing deadline for 2018 tax returns is Monday, April 15.

Free state tax assistance is available at all of the agency’s 12 taxpayer service offices Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. A list of office locations can be found at marylandtaxes.gov.

For more information on any tax-related matter, please visit Comptroller’s website at marylandtaxes.gov or call 1-800-MD-TAXES (1-800-638-2937) or 410-260-7980 in Central Maryland.
