Maryland Alcohol Tobacco Commission

NOTICE: Effective January 1, 2021, the Office of the Comptroller of Maryland (COM) is no longer authorized to enforce or regulate the state's laws concerning alcoholic beverages and tobacco products – that authority now rests with the state’s Alcohol and Tobacco Commission. The COM will continue to collect and process alcohol and tobacco taxes and returns. During this period of conversion, information contained on this website is being updated to reflect current law. In the meantime, please contact the Field Enforcement Bureau of the COM at 410-260-7388 for additional information and guidance.

The Comptroller's Office is responsible for enforcing the state's revenue laws relating to motor fuels, business licenses and the sales and use tax for individuals and businesses.

Field Inspectors also monitor the transportation and storage of motor fuel, and verify that retail locations are complying with regulations governing pricing, labeling and registration. Fuel samples are also collected and tested at the division's Petroleum Testing Laboratory in Jessup to ensure quality standards. Any sub-standard product is removed from the marketplace until the problem is corrected.
