The state of Maryland has passed into law a bill that would allow direct shipment of wine to Maryland consumers. Effective July 1st, wineries will be requird to obtain a Direct Wine Shippers Permit for an annual fee of $200, and pay quarterly state and excise taxes. The permit will be renewable annually on July 1 of each year. Permit holders may not ship more than 12 nine liter cases into the state per year to any one household.
The Direct Wine Shippers Permit application has not yet been created. Once the Comptroller's office releases and application, Compli will release the application on directshiplicense.com, or you can contact us for a quote.
