Online tax filing
The Maryland Office of the Comptroller plans to release an RFP for a value-added network for tax filings. The RFP is expected in August. The state wants to replace the technology used by tax return preparers to transmit returns and integrate additional functions. The benefits would be a one-stop tax-filing portal for personal, business and employer tax payments
With new technology, the state would integrate electronic employer withholding submissions, Internet filing of personal tax returns and Internet business filings with current electronic filing applications. A business would have one portal for several types of required electronic submissions and the state would have one portal for all business and tax submissions. The project is valued at $2.5 million.
