Maryland Will Not Implement Federal Payroll Tax Deferral Program for State Employees

State of Maryland Will NOT Implement Federal Payroll Tax Deferment Program

Yesterday afternoon, The Department of Budget and Management, Office of Personnel Services and Benefits has confirmed that the state of Maryland will NOT be implementing the federal Payroll Tax Deferment program.  

If your agency has shared information about this program, please contact the union as soon as possible. This program cannot be implemented without Central Payroll and DBM who have clearly stated this program will not be implemented.

As noted, this was a DEFERRAL for 9/1-12/31, meaning employees would have been required to repay their taxes between Jan 1-April 15 with potentially significant consequences. Please refer any questions to our member resource center at [email protected] or 410-547-1515.
