Annapolis, MD – March 15, 2016 – Comptroller Peter Franchot reminds taxpayers that they can skip the hassle of waiting in long lines or mailing checks and make their tax payments online with the mobile-friendly Comptroller Online Tax Payment Service. The online service accepts payments for individual income tax, business sales and use tax, and business withholding taxes 24 hours a day, seven days a week and applies to taxes owed for the current year or any previous year.
