- New Agency Twitter Account Will Aid in Reaching Out to Marylanders -

Baltimore, Md. (January 20, 2015) – Tweeting is usually for the birds, but now it’s also for the Maryland State Department of Assessments and Taxation (SDAT). The agency is already on Facebook, but in the interest of reaching more Marylanders, SDAT now provides valuable information from the agency on Twitter.

“The more ways we have to reach out to Marylanders, the better off we all are,” said acting agency director, Owen Charles. The agency’s Twitter feed provides Marylanders information, updates, links and the occasional miscellaneous Maryland tweet in 140 characters or less.

The Twitter account will provide links to information from SDAT as well as other state and federal agencies. “It should also help differentiate us from other agencies and local government finance offices as well as the Maryland Comptroller’s Office. Despite the “taxation” in our name, we assess real and personal property and provide services for business entities doing regular business in Maryland,” said Mr. Charles.

Follow the agency on Twitter @MD_SDAT. The agency’s website is still the number one source for agency information while the Facebook page provides resources for contacting the agency as well as photos and information.
