We received the below information from the NPRRA.

The Maryland State Department of Assessments and Taxation has issued a  about changes to its Annual Report and Personal Property Tax Return.  The press release states in part as follows:

“Beginning in 2018, the Department will be separating the Annual Report and Personal Property Tax Return filings, which historically have been combined in Form 1. All business entities will still be required to file a two-page Annual Report, and directions within that document will determine whether or not they must also attach a Personal Property Tax Return. The majority of business owners—roughly 200,000—do not actually own any personal property and will not be required to complete that section.”

A copy of the press release is attached, and also can be found online here:
