Ellicott City businesses impacted by this weekend's flooding will have an additional 30 days to file their business tax returns this month. 

Comptroller Peter Franchot said the extension includes sales and use tax, withholding tax and admissions and amusement tax. 

The affected business tax returns will be due by Sept. 19.  Taxpayers who file and pay by the extended due date will receive a waiver of interest and penalties. The sales and use tax vendor discount will apply as long as the returns are filed and the taxes are remitted by that date.

Howard County businesses can call 410-260-7980 or 1-800-638-2937 for more information or email the Comptroller's Office at  Business owners that need other assistance, additional time to file or other questions or problems can call Karen Scheerer or Mariella Cruz in the office of the Comptroller's Ombudsman at 410-260-4020.
