I received a tax bill for personal taxes from the state of

Customer Question

I received a tax bill for personal taxes from the state of Maryland for 1991. I was not living in the state at that time; I left in 1989. I have unemployment records from the state I moved to, but I do not have my tax returns from 1991 for either state or federal.
Do I have to pay this tax debt that exceeds $3800 with penalty and interest.

TaxWhisperer :

This is horrible for MD to do this! I realize it may be hard to get a copy of your 1991 NY return, but you might be able to get some sort of "account record" from NY that shows you filed a resident return. Call NY DOR and ask them what they can prove or certify.

TaxWhisperer :

What a load of crap from the state of MD.

JACUSTOMER-fkkexm3u- :

I tried that, they stated that they do not have the records. Now what should I do? Is there a SOL for this type of thing?

Contact the MD tax COMMISSIONERs office
