Business and Professional License Hold

The state and local agencies listed below must verify that an applicant renewing a license has paid all states taxes due - or made a satisfactory payment arrangement - before the license can be renewed:

  • Comptroller of Maryland
  • Clerks of the Circuit Court
  • Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation
  • Department of Health and Mental Hygiene
  • Motor Vehicles Administration
  • Department of Natural Resources
  • Department of the Environment

If you hold a license issued by one of these agencies, you should file any necessary tax returns and pay all taxes due without delay. If you wait until license renewal time to resolve a tax liability, your renewal may be delayed

Once the tax issue has been resolved, the Comptroller's Office will notify the appropriate agency.
