What Is the Maryland Definition of a Tax Amendment?
If you need to make changes in your original tax return for a specific year, then you must file a tax amendment form. You should file it no later than 3 years after the date of the original tax return. If the IRS makes changes to your tax return, you should notify the state of Maryland within a period of 90 days after the IRS made changes and finalized the process. Also, if you filed an amended federal tax return, you must also amend your Maryland state tax return.

Penalties, Interest, and Fees
The state of Maryland's Comptroller Office can issue several penalties, including a penalty for not filing a tax return, a penalty for failing to pay the tax on time, a fraudulent return penalty or a penalty for making false claims.
The Comptroller of Maryland can penalize the taxpayer for up to $500 if a fraudulent or substantially wrong information is present in a filed tax return. In addition, the taxpayer may face criminal charges for a fraudulent return.
The state of Maryland also imposes a charge for a check that doesn't clear amounting to $30.
There is also interest collected on unpaid taxes. It currently stands at 13% per year accrued from the due date of the tax return, and can be up to 25% of the amount of tax owed.
