ANNAPOLIS – Auditor Peter Franchot extended tax breaks to companies hit Wednesday by severe storms that caused significant damage in parts of Counties Anne Arundel, Charles and Montgomery, as well as other parts of Maryland.
The extended due dates for a variety of taxes and fuel payments for businesses and rescue workers now apply nationwide.
“Although the tornado that hit Edgewater and Annapolis attracted most of the attention, it is clear that the remnants of Hurricane Ida left their mark on communities across Maryland,” Franchot said.
The Comptroller’s Office issues an interest and fine waiver for business taxpayers who cannot meet the September filing deadlines for the following types of tax as long as they report and pay the taxes due on the new dates.
Tax Type Due Date: Paid By:
– Sale & Use: Originally due on September 20th, now due on October 20th.
– Entry & Entertainment: Originally due September 10th, now October 10th.
– Withdrawal: Originally due September 15, now due October 15.
– Alcohol (depending on type): Originally due on September 10th, 15th, 20th and 25th; now due on October 10th, 15th, 20th and 25th.

Certain requirements of the International Fuel Tax Agreement are also temporarily made available for shippers and carriers of important emergency supplies or for those who provide the restoration of utilities for the affected area.
