Yes. A late filing penalty of 10% of the tax assessed is imposed and added to the tax bill for returns filed after the deadline. If the assessed tax is less than $10 the late filing penalty is imposed in the amount of the tax. A late filing penalty in the amount of $10 is imposed for assessed tax between $10-$100.
If a vehicle is registered with the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) indicating that a Caroline County jurisdiction or you filed a return last year, there will be a form set mailed to you detailing each motor vehicle, trailer or boat filed the previous year. The preprinted information on these forms should be changed if incorrect.
"I didn't get the form" does not excuse the late filing penalty. If you do not receive the forms, contact the Commissioner of the Revenue Office.
