ANNAPOLIS, Md. - Salisbury is getting a new call center to assist taxpayers during the 2017 tax season.

In early January, the center will open next to the existing Salisbury branch of the state comptroller's office at Sea Gull Square, Comptroller Peter Franchot announced at Wednesday's Board of Public Works meeting. It will be the agency's first remote customer call center.

“This new center will substantially increase our capacity to respond more quickly to taxpayers’ calls – especially during the busy tax season -- and boost Salisbury’s local economy with some new jobs,” Franchot said. The center will employee up to 25 people, he added, some year-round and others during the busy tax season of January through April.

Salisbury University President Janet Dudley-Eshbach believes the center's proximity to campus may prove beneficial to students.

"SU students, we hope, also will have opportunities to learn there with internships in communications, public service and other fields," she said.

The call center will not be open to the public, but anyone with a tax question or in need of free tax help can stop by the neighboring Salisbury Branch Office at Unit 182, 1306 S. Salisbury Blvd., weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
