Maryland Additions to Income

Tax-Exempt State or Local Bond Interest

Enter the interest from non-Maryland state or local bonds or other obligations (less related expenses). This includes interest from mutual funds that invest in non-Maryland state or local obligations. Interest earned on obligations of Maryland or any Maryland subdivision is exempt from Maryland tax and should not be entered here.


Lump Sum Distribution From a Qualified Retirement Plan

If you received this type of distribution, you will receive a Form 1099-R showing the amounts distributed. You must report part of the lump sum distribution as an addition to income if you file federal Form 4972. Use the Lump Sum Distribution Worksheet to determine the amount of the addition.
