Maryland comptroller to chat about taxes

Taxchat Tax season is winding down, but there's still time to get your last-minute filing questions answered.

Maryland Comptroller Peter Franchot will answer questions from taxpayers and tax pros alike in real time during an online chat session from 1 to 2 p.m. on Thursday, April 1.

"People will be able to logon and ask the comptroller any of their last-minute tax questions and seek advice before the approaching April 15 deadline," the Comptroller's Office states. "In the waning days of the filing season, the comptroller wants to offer answers to stressed-out filers and ensure taxpayers do not fall victim to any last-minute tax scams or rush into any short-sighted refund anticipation loans during these final hours."
