NOTICE TO ALL RESIDENTS THAT RESIDE WITHIN THE CORPORATE LIMITS OF LEONARDTOWN
This Message Is A Reminder About An Important Part Of Filing Your Maryland Income Tax Return.
Just under the address label is a place for you to name St. Mary’s County as where you reside. For those living in the incorporated limits of Leonardtown, you must also write the word Leonardtown in the box right beside St. Mary’s. Additionally, your physical address should be entered in the address box. Some residents use a P. O. box as their mailing address.
Why Is This Important?
A large part of the Town of Leonardtown’s operating budget is local income tax. The only way to be sure that Leonardtown is receiving all it is entitled to receive is by having all residents properly complete the City, town or taxing area box when they file their Maryland income tax return. This does not increase your tax at all. It just allows for proper distribution so your income tax dollars come back to be used right here in Leonardtown.
If you use a tax preparer, please make sure they know to type Leonardtown in the City, town or taxing area box.
If you are not sure whether you live in the corporate limits, please call the Town office at 301-475-9791
