Payment Methods and Information

Below you will find links for methods to pay your Maryland tax liability. If you are unable to pay the full amount due, you should still file a return and consider making payment arrangements. We will process your return and then send you an income tax notice for the remaining balance due for nonpayment of taxes. See the Tax Compliance section for details regarding collections, payment arrangements, income tax notices, non-payment and missed or late payments.

You can pay your current Maryland tax amount due by direct debit at the time of filing, if you file online using iFile, bFile or another electronic filing method such as using approved computer software, a tax professional, or IRS Free File. In order to comply with new banking rules, we can only process direct debit payments from bank accounts within the United States.

If you file electronically by the April 15th deadline, and choose to pay electronically you have until April 30th to make the electronic payment (by direct debit or credit card). If you file electronically and pay by check or money order, your payment is due by April 15th. (Personal income tax returns are due by April 15th). If you are filing as fiscal year taxpayer, your return is due on the 15th day of the fourth month following the close of the fiscal year. If any due date falls on a Saturday, Sunday or legal holiday, the return must be filed by the next business day.)

If you have already filed and owe additional tax, you can pay the delinquent amount by direct debit using Individual Bill Pay or Business Bill Pay.
