Main Purpose of Job

The Comptroller of Maryland is the state’s tax administration and fiscal oversight agency. We’re responsible for assisting both citizens and those beyond the state’s borders with the filing, processing, payment, and audit of a wide range of tax types. Our agency touches the lives of every citizen in the state—if not by processing credits and refunds families depend on in their financial planning, then by collecting and distributing the funds which pay for everything from roads to schools.
