Departmental Forms & Applications




Note: Due to the fact that the laws governing the formation and operation of business entities and the effectiveness of a UCC Financing Statement involves more than filing documents with our office, we suggest you consult an attorney, accountant or other professional. Our staff can not act as consultants.

Mail completed forms to:

State Department of Assessments and Taxation, Charter Division, 301 W. Preston Street; 8th Fl, Baltimore, MD 21201-2395.  Most of the filing fees for these documents are included in the instructions. You may also view the filing fee schedule online.

When a non-Maryland corporation, LLC, LLP, LP, etc. makes a initial filing with SDAT that creates or reactivates an account, that filing must be accompanied by written proof of existence from the home state, generally the equivalent of a Certificate of Status.



NOTE: Under Maryland Criminal Law, a person who files in public records of the Department of Assessments and Taxations a lien or encumbrance against the personal property of another that is based on a false, fictitious or fraudulent statement is guilty of a misdemeanor and subject to imprisonment not exceeding one year or a fine not exceeding $10,000 or both for the first offense.
