I Didn't File A Maryland Return

There are several reasons why you may not have filed a Maryland return. We have information that indicates that you should have.

If You Have Received an Information Request Notice

You may have received an Information Request Notice from the Comptroller's Office if you filed a federal income tax return using a Maryland address, but did not file a return with the State of Maryland. As part of our non-filer program, we compare our records against information received from the Internal Revenue Service to identify Maryland residents who have not filed a Maryland income tax return. Individuals, who are identified as non-filers, are issued an Information Request notice. Your response to the notice helps us determine whether you are required to file a Maryland tax return.

If You Believe You Were Not Required To File with the State of Maryland

If you were in the military and were a resident of another state. please send us a copy of your military W-2 or your Leave and Earnings Statement (LES) for the year in question. Remember, if you earned non-military income in Maryland, a non-resident income tax return must be filed.

If you were required to file a federal return but not required to file a Maryland return due to the exclusion of social security and/or railroad retirement income. please send us a copy of your social security and/or railroad retirement statement.

If you were a resident of another state for the year in question. please provide a copy of the other state’s income tax return with attachments, such as W-2(s) and 1099(s). If the

other state does not have an income tax, please provide a written statement indicating where you were a resident for the applicable tax period along with copies of all W-2(s) or other income statements.

If you did not live in Maryland during the year in question, please provide an explanation as to why a Maryland address was used on your federal income tax return.
