Who must register?
If you are a tire wholesaler, or a tire retailer who buys tires from out-of-state sources, you must register to pay the tire recycling fee. Tire dealers and service station operators who purchase all their tires from Maryland wholesalers do not have to register to pay the recycling fee.
If your business has more than one location, you do not need to maintain a separate tire recycling account for each location as you do for the sales and use tax. A single return should be filed covering all of a tire dealer's locations.
How to register?
You may register for the tire recycling fee by filing a Combined Registration Application with the Comptroller's Office; or you may register for the tire recycling fee online.
