The Board of Revenue Estimate is composed of
three ex officio members: the Comptroller of the

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 Director
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 De-
cember 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 period; and amount of revenues
uncollected or over-collected (Code State Finance and
Procurement Article, secs. 6-101 through 6-105).

tion; Revenue Accounting; Taxpayer Services; Tax-
payer Accounting; and Returns Processing.

solidates certain functions of the former Sales and
Use Tax Division and the Income Tax Division. The
Division operates a Central Registration Section,

and admissions and amusement tax accounts on
one form. The central registration form also serves
as an initial registration for businesses that may be
required to have State alcoholic beverage and to-
bacco permits or registration with the Motor Fuel
Tax Unit.

The Division is responsible for five sections: Col-
lection; Compliance Programs; Business Tax Audits;
Investigative Services; and Hearings and Appeals.

port; Fiscal Adminstration; and Unclaimed Property.
