11. Does Maryland have any tax checkoffs?
Yes. You can use your income tax return to contribute money to three checkoffs:
- Chesapeake Bay and Endangered Species Fund
- Developmental Disabilities Services and Support Fund
- Maryland Cancer Fund
- Fair Campaign Financing Fund
The Chesapeake Bay and Endangered Species Trust Fund supports projects that protect our state’s natural resources. The Developmental Disabilities and Services Support Fund supports services for children and families such as job training and employment. The Fair Campaign Financing Fund provides a funding alternative in Maryland gubernatorial elections when candidates accept a spending limit. The Maryland Cancer Fund supports grants for cancer research, prevention and treatment.
