Maryland – Expiring Exempt Organization Certificates

SALT Report 1680 – The Maryland Comptroller issued a reminder for all exempt organizations that have Maryland exempt organization forms. These forms are expiring as of September 30, 2012 and every exempt organization must reapply to receive a new exemption certificate.

When completing the application, you must acknowledge the exempt status of your nonprofit organization and indicate any changes that would affect its exempt status. The application must be signed, include your title, and the organization’s Federal Employer Identification Number. You must also note any changes to the organization’s name, address or telephone number.

If the name of the organization has changed, you must enclose a copy of the amended articles of incorporation. You must also submit documentation from the IRS if there has been a change in your organization’s FEIN.

The Comptroller’s Office mailed renewal applications to all nonprofit organizations with a valid Maryland sales and use tax exemption certificate in May 2012. If your organization did not receive a renewal application, you may request an application by contacting Taxpayer Services at 410-260-7980 or e-mail your request to taxhelp@comp.state.md.us.
