Maryland Payment Options


The fastest way to file your return and receive your refund is to file electronically and request direct deposit. If you request direct deposit on your electronic return your refund should be in your bank account within 72 hours of acknowledgement from the Revenue Administration Division. You may request electronic funds withdrawal (direct debit) payments on your electronic return. If you both file and pay electronically, your return is due April 15th. However, you will have until April 30th to make your electronic payment. Note: An online payment where the bank mails the Comptroller of Maryland a paper check is not considered an electronic payment. You may file your return electronically through your personal computer. For more information, please visit: www.marylandtaxes.com

If your paper or electronic tax return has a balance due, you may pay electronically at www.marylandtaxes.com by selecting BillPay. The amount that you designate will be debited from your bank or financial institution on the date that you choose.

Make your check or money order payable to Comptroller of Maryland. Use blue or black ink. Do not use red ink or pencil. Write the type of tax and year of tax being paid on your check. It is recommended that you include your Social Security number on check. Mark an X in the box for Payment Enclosed on the envelope.  Include the payment voucher that is listed with your forms.  DO NOT SEND CASH.

You may pay your balance due by using MasterCard, Discover, American Express or Visa. Credit card payments are considered electronic payments for the purpose of the April 30th extended due date if you filed your return electronically by April 15th.
Credit card payments may be made by telephone or over the Internet. The internet option is available to everyone. You must have filed a previous year Maryland income tax return to use the telephone option.
Both options will be processed by Official Payments Corporation who will charge a convenience fee on the amount of your payment. The State will not receive this fee. You will be told the amount of the fee before you complete your transaction. Do not include the amount of the convenience fee as part of the tax payment.
To make a credit card payment call 1-800-2PAYTAX (1-800-272-9829) or visit their Web site at www.officialpayments.com.
