In 2009, the Maryland General Assembly passed Senate Bill 277(Chapter 500, Acts of 2009), which revised the Courts and Judicial Proceedings Article 7-302 to require political subdivisions to remit to the Comptroller any Speed Monitoring System fines collected in excess of 10% of a subdivision's fiscal year revenues.
All Maryland local governmental jurisdictions that enforce speed limit laws are required to file an annual report to the Comptroller of Maryland.
The Maryland Speed Monitoring System Report (SMS-1) is due on the 30th day of September following the fiscal year in which the Speed Monitoring Fines were collected.
Payment to the Comptroller should be made electronically. For information on setting up electronic payments or other questions concerning the SMS-1, please contact Taxpayer Service at 410-260-7980 or 1-800-MD-TAXES between the hours of 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
