Maryland taxpayers can check the status of state tax refunds via the online application on the Comptroller of Maryland's website, MarylandTaxes.com. Taxpayers can also request refund statuses by calling an automated voice-response system or sending in an email request, notes the Comptroller of Maryland.
Individual and business taxpayers can check the status of state tax refunds by clicking on the "Where's My Refund" link on the MarylandTaxes.com homepage and following the provided instructions. Information requested includes the taxpayer's Social Security number or individual taxpayer identification number and the exact value of the return based on the filing information, according to the Comptroller of Maryland.
To obtain the status of tax refunds submitted by a tax preparation agency, taxpayers must provide the comptroller's office with the date of filing in addition to the identification number and refund value. In the event of a joint tax filing, the first or primary taxpayer's Social Security number or identification number should be used to request a refund status. The statuses of taxes filed by paper are available following a 30-day processing period. However, the state processes electronically filed taxes within one day, resulting in the earlier availability of refund information, notes the Comptroller of Maryland.
