Revenue Administration Division

The Revenue Administration Division is responsible for the "front end" process. In other words we are responsible for receiving and processing the tax returns and payments for the taxes administered by the Comptroller of Maryland. These include personal, corporate, fiduciary, pass-through entity, employer withholding, sales and use, motor fuel, alcohol, tobacco, estate, admissions and amusement, tire fee, Bay Restoration Fee and inheritance taxes.

The total gross revenue collected and accounted for from all of the taxes listed above was $24 billion in FY 2016. The Comptroller's Office is the single largest state agency to account for General Funds going to the State budget.

The local income taxes which all residents of Maryland pay, are collected by the Revenue Administration Division and distributed to the 23 counties, Baltimore City, and 168 incorporated cities and towns throughout the year. This distribution totaled $5.2 billion for FY 2016.

Information for individual, and business taxpayers as well as for tax professionals may be found here on our Maryland Taxes Web site.
