Did You Know?

Governor Hogan Announces Legislation to Eliminate SDAT’s $300 Annual Business Fee Transformative Legislation Will Make Maryland Most Competitive State in the Country for Annual Business Filings
Maryland would be the first state in the country to provide a zero-fee option for all businesses for this type of filing, which is required to be submitted every year with the Maryland State Department of Assessments and Taxation (SDAT). Annual reports, and most business filings, can be submitted online using the Hogan administration’s award-winning Maryland Business Express website.

Corporations, LLCs, and other legal entities are currently required to file annual reports with SDAT every year for $300, and family farms for $100. The administration's bill would not only amend Maryland’s annual report fee structure to be among the most competitive in the nation, but it would also incentivize online filing, which is a more efficient and cost-effective filing method for businesses and the state.

If you are a business owner and are unsure whether your business is in good standing, or if you are required to submit an annual report, please read SDAT’s Good Standing Checklist.
