ANNAPOLIS, Md. — Comptroller Peter Franchot announced on Tuesday that he is extending business-related tax filings to July 15.

This applies to certain business returns with due dates during the months of February, March, April, and May 2020 for businesses filing sales and use tax, withholding tax, and admissions & amusement tax, as well as alcohol, tobacco and motor fuel excise taxes, tire recycling fee and bay restoration fee returns.

The deadline for June payments of the alcohol tax and admissions & amusement tax have also been extended to July 15.

"The coronavirus pandemic has become a public health disaster and an economic catastrophe," said Comptroller Franchot. "Small businesses, which are the lifeblood of our economy, are hurting. Any measure of relief we can provide to help them keep the lights on will be welcome news."
