11. Does Maryland have any tax checkoffs?
Yes. You can use your income tax return to contribute money to three checkoffs:
- Chesapeake Bay and Endangered Species Fund
- Developmental Disabilities Services and Support Fund
- Maryland Cancer Fund
The Chesapeake Bay and Endangered Species Trust Fund supports projects that protect our state’s natural resources. The Fair Campaign Financing Fund provides a funding alternative in Maryland gubernatorial elections when candidates accept a spending limit. The Maryland Cancer Fund supports grants for cancer research, prevention and treatment.
