EXTENSION OF TIME TO FILE Follow the instructions on Form 502E to request an automatic extension of the time to file your return. Filing this form extends the time to file your return, but does not extend the time to pay your taxes. Payment of the expected tax due is required with Form 502E by April 15. You can file and pay by credit card or electronic funds withdrawal (direct debit) on our Web site. If no tax is due and you requested a federal extension, you do not need to file Form 502E or take any other action to obtain an automatic six month extension. If no tax is due and you did not request a federal extension, file your extension online at www.marylandtaxes.com or by phone at 410-260-7829. Only submit Form 502E if tax is due.
COMBAT ZONE EXTENSION Maryland allows the same six-month extension for filing and paying personal income taxes for military and support personnel serving in a designated combat zone or qualified hazardous duty area and their spouses as allowed by the IRS. For more detailed information visit www.irs.gov. If you are affected by the extension enter 912 in one of the code number boxes to the right of the telephone number area.
