Other Maryland Sales Tax Information

Filing Requirements: You can electronically file your sales and use tax return for free on the Internet using bFile application or if you choose to file your sales and use tax returns by paper, use the forms sent to you by Maryland – not a photocopy or a computer-generated report.

What Will You Need: Documents used for filing must be provided directly from the State of Maryland as the scan line on the original form contains data the state needs to process your return.
