Form EL101 Instructions 2011

Purpose of Form EL101

Form EL101 is the signature document for an e-Filed return filed by an online electronic transmitter or electronic return originator (ERO). It also serves as a declaration document regarding consent for: direct deposit of refund, electronic funds withdrawal (direct debit) for a liability and for a return to be electronically filed. This form should be completed for all Maryland e-Filed returns and retained by the taxpayer and ERO for 3 years from the return due date or Maryland received date, whichever is later. Do not send this form to the State of Maryland unless specifically requested to do so.

ERO Responsibilities

The ERO must:

1.Enter the name(s) and Social Security number(s) of the taxpayer(s) at the top of the form. Do not use the ERO’s address.

2.Complete Part I using the amounts (zeros may be entered when appropriate) from the taxpayer’s 2011 tax return.

3.If the taxpayer(s) elected to have direct deposit of their refund, or electronic funds withdrawal (direct debit) for all or part of their liability, check the appropriate box in Part II. The taxpayer(s) should check with their financial institution to make sure their deposit or debit will be accepted and to get the correct routing and account numbers. For direct debit only account (1) should be used.

4.After completing the form through Part II, give the taxpayer(s) Form EL101 for review and signature(s). This can be done in person, by mail or by secure e-mail.

5.The originator (paid preparer) must sign Form EL101 and include their electronic filer identification number (EFIN) and firm name and address. An electronically transmitted income tax return will be considered incomplete unless and until a correctly completed Form EL101 is signed by the taxpayer(s) and/or by the ERO if applicable. If a joint return is filed, both taxpayers must sign. The taxpayer(s) must sign the completed EL101 before the electronic record is transmitted.

6.If the ERO makes changes to the electronic return after FORM EL101 has been signed by the taxpayer(s), but before the return is transmitted, the originator must have the taxpayer(s) sign a corrected Form EL101. See the 2011 Maryland Personal EMS and MeF e-File Handbook(s).

Taxpayer(s) must:

1.Verify the accuracy of the prepared income tax return, including direct deposit and direct debit information if applicable.

When sending required supporting documentation and certifications, please send Form EL101 as a cover sheet and write the name of the credit for which certification is being submitted on the face of the form, directly under the tax year.
