Course Description

State income tax is Maryland’s largest, single source of general fund revenue. Given the location of the state on the northeastern seaboard and its significant population of government and military taxpayers, there is a significant influx and outflow of Maryland taxpayers each year. Maryland tax preparers, therefore, are frequently called upon to know and apply the rules relating to residents, nonresidents, and part-year residents in addition to members of the military with or without income from overseas.

This course begins with an overview of the Maryland tax system followed by a focus on the rules that apply to tax returns for individual taxpayers of different types. Changes to Maryland individual and business taxes that took place in 2019 are then discussed.

The course meets two hours of Maryland State Tax Related matters, the licensing requirement for Maryland Individual Tax Preparers is to obtain at least four hours of continuing education in Maryland state tax-related subjects, of which two hours may be satisfied by a federal course in ethics.
