152/Maryland Manual

The Comptroller, through the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax Division, controls and regulates the manufac-
ture, sale, transportation, and distribution of alcoholic beverages into, within, and out of Maryland; issues
licenses to manufacturers, wholesalers, airlines, railroads, and steamboats; and issues permits to nonbever-
age dealers, nonresident dealers, transportation companies, transporters, and for public individual storage.
The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax Enforcement Unit is charged with the specific enforcement of certain
alcoholic beverage and tobacco tax laws.

Through the Motor Fuel Tax Division, the Comptroller registers and licenses motor fuel dealers
as diesel fuel sellers and/or users. The Motor Fuel Inspection Unit and the Motor Fuel Testing Laboratory
enforce specifications designed to guarantee the quality of fuel offered for sale in the State.

Through the Sales and Use Tax Division, the Comptroller operates a Central Registration Unit,
allowing individuals to register for sales tax, State income tax withholding, unemployment insurance, and
admissions and amusement tax accounts on one form. The central registration form also serves as an initial
registration for businesses which may be required to have State alcoholic beverage and/or tobacco permits
or registration with the Motor Vehicle Fuel Tax Division.

The Comptroller prescribes the form of all licenses required by the State licensing laws, which are issued
through the Clerks of the Courts of the various counties. Each month the Comptroller collects license
revenues, State property transfer taxes, death taxes, and real and personal property taxes from the Clerks
of the Courts, Registers of Wills, and County Treasurers of each county Distribution of certain taxes and
revenue is made to the cities, towns, and counties of the State and to other State agencies as prescribed
by law (Code 1957, Art. 78B, sec. 19; Code Tax—General Article, secs. 2-201 through 2-203, 2-301,
2-302, 2-606 through 2-609, 2-614, 2-617, 2-901, 2-902, 2-1001 through 2-1004, 2-1506; Code
Transportation Article, secs. 8-401 through 8-407).

Pamphlets and booklets describing taxes collected by the Comptroller and offering advice on opening
a new business and furnishing statistical information (including the Comptroller's Comprehensive Annual
Financial Report) are available from the Public Affairs Office (telephone: 974-3885).

The Board of Revenue Estimates was created in
1945 (Chapter 991, Acts of 1945). The Board
studies the findings and recommendations of the
Bureau of Revenue Estimates. The Board then
sends to the Governor, for submission to the Gen-
eral Assembly an itemized statement of anticipated
revenues for the next fiscal year. With the itemized
statement, the Board submits its recommendations
to the Governor.

The Board of Revenue Estimate is composed of
three ex officio members: the Comptroller of the
Treasury, the State Treasurer, and the Secretary of
Budget and Fiscal Planning.

The Bureau of Revenue Estimates was estab-
lished in 1945 (Chapter 991, Acts of 1945). The
Bureau studies and analyzes all sources of revenue,
prepares for the Board of Revenue Estimates the
findings for the itemized statement of anticipated
revenue, devises equitable and economical means to
collect such revenue, and devises and recommends
new revenue sources.

By the end of each January and July, the Direc-
tor of the Bureau, in conjunction with the
Comptroller's Office, prepares and submits to the
General Assembly an itemized statement of revenue
estimates for the six-month period ending on the
next preceding December 31 or June 30, as the case
may be. The statement shows: estimated revenue
from all sources for the current budget period;
collections for the next preceding six-month pe-
riod; and amount of revenues uncollected or over-
collected (Code 1957, Art. 41, sec. 194). The
appropriation for the Bureau is included in the
budget of the Comptroller of the Treasury
