Maryland to pay $11 million to homeowners after tax error

The state will pay over $11 million in refunds to some Maryland homeowners — primarily in Montgomery County and Baltimore City — after Louis Wilen of Olney uncovered a mistake by the state taxation department.

The affected homeowners were shorted on the Homeowners Tax Credit, for homeowners with a family income of $60,000 or less. [Fox 5]

REAL ID deadline extended again for Maryland, rest of U.S.

Maryland residents will have an additional 19 months to get their REAL ID after the Department of Homeland Security delayed the requirement for all U.S. air travelers to have a REAL ID-compliant form of identification by Oct. 1.

The deadline has been postponed until May 3, 2023, for Maryland and all other states. [Patch]
