Maryland Announces New Software Designations and e-File Amended Returns

There will be a significant change in the software approval process for Maryland MeF for Tax Year 2013. Beginning January 1, 2014, the Comptroller of Maryland will designate eFile Software Vendors’ Maryland products as either Basic or Comprehensive. This will apply to both business and individual income tax software packages.  See Tax Alert 8-13.

The Basic designation will be used for simple returns. Software packages designated as Comprehensive will support all electronic forms, including Amended Returns (new for 2013 tax returns) and the transmission of binary attachments (PDFs).

The designations for business and individual will help taxpayers and tax professionals determine which software will best fit their needs. 

Approved eFile software vendors are now listed separately for individuals and businesses
