Where can I obtain proof of my “Good Standing” documentation for my jurisdiction?
The Maryland State Department of Assessments and Taxation issues a certificate verifying that a business entity is in “good standing”. For more information, please see Certificate of Status on the Maryland State Department of Assessments and Taxation (SDAT) website. Similarly, the District of Columbia, Office of Tax and Revenue also issues a Certificate of Clean Hands formerly known as a Certificate of Good Standing. In the Commonwealth of Virginia, the State Corporation Commission (SSC) Office of the Clerk issues a Certificate of Good Standing.
