As a follow up from an earlier blog post discussing tax amnesty programs in the Washington Metropolitan area, Nancy Trejos's article in the Washington Post today discussed Maryland's tax amnesty program that extends until October 30 and Virginia's program that gives residents until December 5.  The District of Columbia has also approved a tax amnesty program, but has not yet announced the relevant dates.  There's no better time than the present if you owe any back taxes!

The economy has affected the budgets of not just individuals and companies, but also state and local governments. In these hard economic times, governments are facing serious shortfalls of revenue, made worse by the plunging value of real estate, shriveling sources of funding and growing budget deficits.  In response, states and municipalities have become much more proactive about checking and enforcing compliance with all taxes, including business taxes.

You are likely aware of business license requirements, but  you may not realize that you could be required to obtain a nonresident construction license if you work in other states, such as Maryland. Additionally, you could be subject to further business tax obligations above and beyond your business license fee, such as sales or gross receipts taxes and use taxes.
