If you are a Maryland resident who earned income in another state and both Maryland and the other state imposed tax on the income, you may be eligible for a credit on your Maryland return. The program will automatically calculate this credit if the Maryland Resident return and the other state nonresident return is entered into the program.
Please note: Maryland has written reciprocal agreements with Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia and the District of Columbia. You cannot take the credit for taxes paid to another state if the other state is listed here. For complete filing instructions for the Maryland return and the reciprocal state, click here.
For more information about this credit please see the Maryland Form 502CR instructions here.
