Common Tax Problems






"I missed the filing deadline."
If you have the information ready to file your return, you can file your tax return online for free - using iFile for personal income taxes or bFile for sales and use tax and withholding tax returns. If you need assistance, call us at one of the numbers listed below under Contact Information.


"I haven't filed returns for one or more reporting periods."
You should file the missing returns right away before we contact you. Once we begin our investigation of a case involving multiple returns that haven't been filed, we may have to assess fraud penalties or refer your case to the Attorney General's Office for criminal prosecution. File online using iFile for personal income taxes or bFile for business taxes. You should file all of the missing returns at the same time so that we can offset overpayments against the underpayments and develop a true picture of the total liability. Also, out of statute income tax refunds can be applied to offset simultaneously filed balance-due income tax returns. If you need assistance, please call us at one of the numbers listed below under Contact Information.





Lane :

If you need additional assistance or have questions about your return you may contact Taxpayer Service at(NNN) NNN-NNNNfrom Central Maryland or at 1-800-MD TAXES from elsewhere. Assistance is available Monday - Friday, 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

Lane :

Quite hinestly, it's rare that they would use a collection service fortaxes only three years old

Lane :

Can you tell me a little more about what communications you've had from them?

Lane :

I still don't see you coming into the chat session, so I'll move us to the "Q&A" mode. … Maybe that will help … (We can still continue a dialogue there, just not in real-time chat, as we can here)

Lane :

But first, let me give you some general information: (1) It's not uncommon for states to send a tax bill without any information other than your having earnings if you didn't file for that year... for example, you may have had enough withheld to cover the taxes, but because you didn't file OR they never received a form, they just assume that you earned th money and that's it... you have to file (or re-file) to prove to the that they actually owe YOU money, for example) ... (2) Even if tey did send this out to a collector, the fastest way to make it go away is to get with MD department of taxation directly

Lane :

I still dont see you here, so I'll move us now... but PLEASE, let me know if you have any questions at all..... I'll be there

So theoretically if I send my 2010 tax return in again that should resolve this issue?


Yes, inmy experience that's the solution about 80% of the time.

Here are the addresses if you want to walk them into one of their field offices.

They'll stamp them received AND give you a receipt:
