Alcohol Tax Update

Earlier this summer MTC and SC&H State & Local Tax co-hosted a webinar on Maryland’s new 9% tax rate on alcohol sales. Ed Benn CPA who presented the webinar noted that there MAY be opportunities for MH&LA to offer corrective suggestions for a “technical corrections” bill in a future legislative session. In addition, the State Comptroller will likely be publishing “Tax Tips” on this law and would welcome examples that could be used to clarify some of the more tricky aspects encountered in applying this new tax rate to food & beverage and catering transactions. Please relay any suggestions on a technical corrections bill or examples for the Comptroller to David Reel at
