SDAT continues to strongly encourage customers to use its comprehensive online filing system for the following services:
Business and Personal Property transactions and
Homestead Tax Credit application filings.
Please be advised that SDAT will continue dropbox service in the lobby of 301 West Preston Street for customers seeking $425 expedited service. No more than five Charter Filings may be submitted per customer/firm/courier per day between 7:45am and 10:00am. Documents and payment must be placed in a sealed envelope that clearly identifies a point of contact's name, email, and phone number, and all filings must include payment for the $425 expedited fee
in addition to the base filing fee. If these procedures are not followed or the filing is rejected, same-day service is not guaranteed.
While SDAT strongly encourages filers to submit the Annual Report online through Maryland Business Express, Annual Reports and Business Personal Property Returns may be hand delivered to the drop boxes located in the lobby of 301 West Preston Street between 8:30 AM and 4:30 PM, Monday
through Friday. Please ensure that all hand delivered Annual Reports are placed in an envelope with applicable filing fees. Annual Reports are considered filed on the day delivered to the dropbox and do not require additional expediting fees.
Acknowledgement letters, certified copies and good standing certificates for approved filings will be placed on the dropbox by 4:30 PM for customer pickup the same day the approved filing is dropped off.
Customers with questions regarding their business, real or personal property assessment, or tax credit are strongly encouraged to contact the Department via email using the contact information below.
