Hi, my name is Mark. I will be happy to help you with your question. If your employer pays you as an employee they would need to set up a Maryland account for withholding purposes.
One possible solution would be fore you to create and LLC or S-Corporation. The out of state entity could pay the LLC or S-Corporation and would not be responsible for the Maryland withholding. Of course in this situation you would not be treated as an employee.
You could file as exempt and be responsible for making estimated payments. Your employer would still be required to get a Maryland withholding account and a Maryland unemployment tax account. The employer is not paying the Maryland taxes. They are withholding the taxes for your benefit.
