Maryland Issues Tax Entension For Businesses Affected By Flooding

The state of Maryland is granting a tax payment extension for businesses affected by last month's flooding outside of Baltimore.

Comptroller Peter Franchot says taxpayers in the Dundalk area had filing dates of October 15th and 20th. He says those deadlines have been pushed back a month for sales and use tax.

People who file by the November dates won't be charged interest, late payment fees or penalties.

A six-foot wide water main broke on September 17th, washing away part of a road, flooding cars and trapping some residents in their homes.
