Maryland State Department of Assessments and Taxation Relocates to Downtown Baltimore​

BALTIMORE, MD – The Maryland State Department of As​sessments and Taxation(SDAT) today announced its headquarters has relocated from State Center to the Candler Building located at 700 East Pratt Street in Baltimore’s Central Business District.

“This highly anticipated relocation offers a more modern and convenient working environment for our team and will allow us to serve our customers even better,” said Interim Director Dan Phillips. “We are thrilled to be part of Baltimore City’s downtown business community and look forward to all the benefits it has to offer.”

The Department’s headquarters staff will be fully relocated including the business charter functions, business personal property assessments, utility assessments, franchise tax, tax credit programs, tax sale ombudsman’s office, homeowner protection program, ground rent program, and general SDAT administration. The Department’s real property assessment offices are not impacted by this relocation, and SDAT continues to have a real property office in every Maryland county and Baltimore City. All county assessment office addresses remain the same.

During this transition, SDAT customers are strongly encouraged to use the Maryland Business Express online options to submit business filings and Maryland OneStop to apply for property tax credits. Although the Department’s new walk-in customer service counter located at 123 Market Place, Baltimore MD 21202, will be open for all customers in the coming weeks, at this time it is only available for tax credit customers.  Same day Charter filing services, Annual Reports, Business Personal Property Returns, and other filings may be hand delivered to the drop-boxes available in the lobby of the new location. 

Mail sent to SDAT’s prior State Center offices will be forwarded to the new
location. Updates related to the relocation and availability of services will be posted on SDAT’s
website at
