Set Up Maryland Returns

This article applies to:Returns Central

Tell Us Where You Collect Tax

Add Maryland to the places where you collect tax. This tells AvaTax to calculate tax on Maryland transactions. See the Comptroller of Maryland website for details about nexus, registration, and taxes in Maryland.

Before you add Maryland, there are two things you need to do:

You don't have to select a tax type for Maryland.

"Sourcing" determines the location where a sale is taxed. Maryland is a destination-sourced state.

Add Your Company Locations

Maryland doesn't require location reporting on the returns. Add any physical locations you have in Maryland to enhance your company setup and track sales by location.

After you validate the address when you add a location, make sure it falls in the jurisdictions you expect. If not, you may want to manage your jurisdiction overrides.

Register each of your Maryland business locations under your consolidated account. Each location is assigned its own eight-digit registration ID. All physical locations must be registered, but it's not necessary to report the sales or tax amount by each individual location.

Schedule Your Returns

After you tell us where you collect tax and add locations, you're ready to schedule returns. Go to Returns in AvaTax to provide a funding power of attorney and schedule your returns

Your company name and taxpayer ID from Your Company Details show up on your returns. Make sure they match what’s on your registration information.

Use this info to schedule your returns. Keep in mind that the selections you made when you told us where you collect tax, any location codes you entered, and the forms you select are related and should tie together.

  • Select form MD Sales and Use Tax if you're required to remit sales and use taxes in Maryland
    • Enter your eight-digit registration ID exactly as it appears on your registration information. Example: 12345678
