ANNAPOLIS, Md. (May 8, 2017) – A fire over the weekend at Triangle Center in Greenbelt has not affected branch operations at two existing locations of the Maryland Comptroller’s Office.
The Comptroller Office is slated to move into a new office space within the Greenbelt complex in mid-summer, however, taxpayers may continue to seek assistance at the current Prince George’s County locations in Landover and Upper Marlboro.
Firefighters responded to a fire at 6 p.m. Saturday at Triangle Centre at 6401 Golden Triangle Drive in Greenbelt. The fire was brought under control within a half hour. The Comptroller’s Office is in contact with the property manager to assess the extent of damage and to determine what, if any, effect this will have on the opening of the new office.
In March, the Board of Public Works, made up of Lt. Gov. Boyd Rutherford who was filling in for Gov. Larry Hogan, Treasurer Nancy Kopp and Comptroller Franchot, approved a 10-year lease to make the move possible. The new location will provide more space to serve taxpayers, better signage as well as convenient parking and access to transit lines.
In the meantime, taxpayers may visit the Landover branch office in the Treetops Building at Professional Place at 8181 Professional Place, Suite 101, or the Upper Marlboro Branch in the Prince George’s County Courthouse at 14735 Main St., Room 083B. Branch offices are open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Taxpayers in need of free state tax assistance can continue to call the taxpayer services line from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at 1-800-MD TAXES, or 410-260-7980.
