Yes. Every time you purchase taxable tangible goods, whether in person, over the phone, or on the Internet, the purchase is subject to Maryland's 6 percent sales and use tax if you use the merchandise in Maryland. If you make a tax-free purchase out of state and need to pay Maryland's 6 percent use tax, you should file the Consumer Use Tax Return. When you purchase goods from out-of-state businesses, they are not required to collect Maryland's sales and use tax unless they have a physical location, or deliver services, in Maryland.

No. Energy Star-rated clothes washers, refrigerators and air conditioners sold in Maryland are not exempt from the Maryland sales and use tax. There is a tax-free three-day weekend during which the state sales tax will not apply to the sale of any Energy Star Product listed below, or solar water heater. The tax-free weekend for 2013 will occur the weekend of February 16, 2013, through February 18, 2013. Energy Star Product means an air conditioner, clothes washer or dryer, furnace, heat pump, standard size refrigerator, compact fluorescent light bulb, dehumidifier, or programmable thermostat that has been designated as meeting or exceeding the applicable Energy Star Efficiency requirements developed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy.
Yes. Maryland law requires that vendors display their licenses at any location where sales are made. This will save you valuable selling time because representatives of the Comptroller's Office do not have to ask for your registration number.
Always collect tax on sales to other dealers unless they present you with a resale certificate bearing their Maryland sales tax registration number. However, out-of-state dealers who are not required to collect the Maryland tax may use their out-of-state sales tax registration number on a resale certificate to purchase antiques and used collectibles. Dealers from states that do not impose a sales tax may provide a valid trader's license or comparable document. Resale certificates are not valid for cash, check or credit card sales of less than $200 unless the product is delivered to the customer's place of business.
Taxpayers required to pay with immediately available funds can pay using direct debit by electronically filing for free via bFile; or can pay using a credit card by going online or by calling 1-800-2PAY-TAX (1-800-272-9829). If you are new to bFile, please verify that your financial institution will accept debit transactions.

No. Retailers licensed and remitting taxes in other states may apply to the Maryland Comptroller's Office for a refund. However, an out-of-state vendor who has been issued a temporary permit to collect the Maryland tax may use the number on that permit to make tax-free purchases for resale at the show for which the permit was issued. Temporary permits bear six-digit numbers and are issued by the comptroller's Special Events Section.
No. If you frequently deal with the same supplier, you may provide that supplier with a blanket resale certificate stating that all purchases are for resale. Then all you have to do is give the supplier your sales and use tax registration number.
No. Exemption certificates are issued by the Comptroller of Maryland to qualifying nonprofit organizations and government agencies to make purchases for their own use. The exemption certificate is a wallet-sized card bearing the holder's eight-digit exemption number. Certificates issued to nonprofit organizations have a specific expiration date, presently September 30, 2017 for religious, educational and charitable organizations, cemeteries, credit unions, and volunteer fire companies or rescue squads and September 30, 2017 for certain veterans organizations and their auxiliaries and units. Certificates issued to government agencies have no expiration date. Organizations and government agencies presenting exemption certificates are exempt from the sales and use tax on purchases of materials and supplies to carry out their work. On the other hand, a resale certificate allows a person to make tax-free purchases for resale, not for use.
Although there is no specific form for a resale certificate, it must include a signed statement that the purchase is intended for resale, the purchaser's name and address, and the purchaser's Maryland sales and use tax registration number.

Shop Maryland Tax-free Week occurs every year beginning the second Sunday of August through the following Saturday. Each qualifying article of clothing or footwear selling for $100 or less is exempt from sales tax, regardless of how many items are purchased at the same time. For example, two $60 sweaters purchased at the same time are both exempt even though the total of the purchase is greater than $100.Additionally, the first $40 of a backpack or bookbag purchase is also tax-free. Accessory items, except for backpacks, are not included.
Unlike previous tax-free periods, businesses selling other items not eligible for inclusion in the tax-free week can participate in Shop Maryland. Under regulations dubbed Sellers Privilege, other merchandise besides apparel and backpacks can be sold tax free but with the retailer paying the sales tax.
Unlike in previous tax-free periods, businesses selling other items not eligible for inclusion in the tax-free week can participate in Shop Maryland. Legislation passed in 2007, dubbed Sellers Privilege, allows other merchandise besides apparel to be sold tax free but with the retailer absorbing the sales tax. A vendor may assume or absorb all or any part of the sales and use tax on a retail sale and pay that tax on behalf of the buyer. The vendor must, however, continue to separately state the tax from the sales price at the time of the sale to the purchaser. If the vendor absorbs all or any part of the tax on the sale, the vendor shall pay the tax with the return that covers the period in which the vendor makes the sale.
Vendors may not recognize the resale and incorporation exclusions unless you provide them with a resale certificate with a signed statement that the purchases are for resale and including the buyer's name, address and Maryland sales and use tax registration number. For more information on the use of resale certificates, contact Taxpayer Service and request Business Tax Tip #4, If you Make Purchases for Resale.

If you frequently deal with the same vendor, you may provide that vendor with a blanket resale certificate stating that all purchases are for resale. However it is important to note that your vendor retains the right to ask for a resale certificate for each transaction. If the vendor agrees to receive your blanket resale certificate then all you have to do is give the supplier your sales and use tax registration number. Record Keeping Vendors must clearly document the reason for all tax-exempt sales and should keep resale certificates on file as part of your business records. You must be able to match your sales records with the appropriate resale certificates for audit purposes. You can be held liable for uncollected taxes if you accept resale certificates for sales that you know or should know are not for resale. Purchases under $200 Resale certificates may not be used to make tax-free purchases for resale if the purchase is less than $200 and payment is by cash, check or credit card unless the seller delivers the goods directly to the buyer's retail place of business. However, you may present a resale certificate to make a tax-free purchase of goods for less than $200 if you are purchasing goods: (1) on credit by the seller; (2) which would be exempt even if not sold for resale; or (3) which are alcoholic beverages regulated by Article 2B of the Annotated Code of Maryland.
