Maryland motor fuel tax refund claims must be filed on certain forms required by the Comptroller of Maryland and verified according to Tax-General Article Section 2-103, Annotated Code of Maryland. All refund claims must also be supported by original invoices.
The time limit for claiming a refund is one year from the date of purchase, if you are filing for a full year. If you choose to file an annual claim for the 12-month period ending June 30, you must file the claim by October 1 of that year. Your account must be set up on annual status prior to filing the claim. If you are not filing for a full year, the time limit is three months following the end of the period for which the claim is filed.
You can expect to receive your refund within four to six weeks after your claim has been approved. If the claim is disallowed, you may appeal the ruling by applying for an informal hearing.
