Field Enforcement Division

The Comptroller's Office is responsible for enforcing the state's revenue laws relating to alcoholic beverages, tobacco, motor fuels, business licenses and the sales and use tax for individuals and businesses. 

Enforcement Agents combat the illegal smuggling of untaxed cigarettes by conducting investigations, arresting violators and making sure retail businesses are licensed properly and complying with record keeping regulations.

Field Inspectors also monitor the transportation and storage of motor fuel, and verify that retail locations are complying with regulations governing pricing, labeling and registration. Fuel samples are also collected and tested at the division's Petroleum Testing Laboratory in Jessup to ensure quality standards. Any sub-standard product is removed from the marketplace until the problem is corrected.

Jeffrey A. Kelly, Director
