New resources examine Maryland's corporate reporting rules

FlagThe questions are piling up as the deadline nears to comply with Maryland's new corporate reporting requirements.

And make no mistake: That's a deadline you won't want to miss. Corporations that are 30 days late on these filing requirements could be fined as much as $300,000; 2006 and 2007 reports are due on Oct. 15, 2008, and the fine is $5,000 per day for each report.
