Comptroller Franchot Reopens Waldorf Branch Office


One of 12 Locations for Free Maryland Income Tax Assistance



Annapolis, Md. (Feb. 22, 2010) – Comptroller Peter Franchot today celebrated the grand re-opening of his agency’s field office in Waldorf. The office, which was relocated from another shopping area nearby, will reach more Marylanders with free income tax assistance.


“Our new location is in a prominent area that is easily accessible and offers free parking for citizens,” said Comptroller Franchot. “My staff is looking forward to once again serving the tri-county region.”


The former Waldorf office, which had been serving Marylanders since 1991, closed in May 2008 due to renovations to the Smallwood Village Shopping Center. The new location at 1036 Saint Nicholas Drive, Suite 202, in Waldorf will provide free assistance with Maryland income taxes, sales and use taxes, motor fuel taxes and business registration matters.


“The knowledgeable and veteran staff of my Waldorf office is ready and eager to prepare tax returns for Marylanders who bring their W2s and completed federal return. Any of my agency’s 12 offices offers FREE tax preparation and filing for all taxpayers, regardless of income,” said Comptroller Franchot.


For additional information, taxpayers should visit the Comptroller of Maryland Web site at <> or call (410) 260- 7980 in Central Maryland and 1-800-MD-TAXES (1-800-638-2937) elsewhere. Office hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.


“I would like to remind taxpayers that they can locate tax information, download state tax forms, check on the status of their refund, and even file their Maryland return electronically at <> ,” said Franchot.


Comptroller Franchot is encouraging all Marylanders to file electronically this year. E-filing is the safest, fastest and easiest way to file your taxes. E-filers can expect to receive their money in a few days if they choose direct deposit.
