How to File a Maryland Tax Amendment
If you need to change or amend an accepted Maryland State Income Tax Return for the current or previous Tax Year, you need to complete Form 502X (residents) or Form 505X (nonresidents and part-year residents) and 505NR (nonresident income tax calculation). Forms 502X, 505X, and 505NR are Forms used for the Tax Amendment. You can prepare a 2022 Maryland Tax Amendment on eFile.com, however you cannot submit it electronically. In comparison, the IRS requires a different Form - Form 1040X - to amend an IRS return (do not use Form 1040 for an IRS Amendment).
The IRS might send you a notification to change an error on your Return, or you might have discovered an error. If you or the IRS amended or changed one of your IRS Tax Return(s), the IRS will report this to the Maryland Tax Agency, thus you should file a Maryland Amendment within one year.
Prepare only a MD State Return without an IRS return. Details
