I am unable to efile Maryland return. The error message concerns the direct debit option. i selected May 1 as the debit date. The message says date must be 4/15 or earlier. I know MD has extended due dates of returns and payments until May 17. Would appreciate any advice or workaround suggestions. Thanks!
The due date change from 4/15/21 to 7/15/21 for IND or BUS has not been implemented by the state agency yet. As of now, you can set up the payment to be made on the current date or a future date but not beyond 4/15/21 (as it was the original filing/paying due date).
Until the state updates their system, taxpayers that elect to make payments after 4/15/21 will need to make the payments electronically or with a printed voucher.
