If You Are a Senior Citizen

If you are 65 or older, you can take advantage of several tax benefits on your Maryland return. You are allowed a higher income level before being required to file a return, and you are entitled to an additional personal exemption of $1,000. You may also qualify for a pension exclusion that increases each year, and your Social Security and Railroad Retirement benefits are not subject to Maryland tax.
