Comptroller Peter Franchot announced that he is extending the state income tax filing deadline by three months to July 15, 2021. No interest or penalties will be assessed if returns are filed and taxes owed are paid by the new deadline.

This applies to individual, pass-through, fiduciary and corporate income tax returns, including first and second quarter estimated payments and is due to recent and pending legislation at the state and federal levels that impact 2020 tax filings and provide economic relief for taxpayers affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
