ANNAPOLIS, Md.- All systems to the Maryland Office of the Comptroller have been restored following a heat-related outage that temporarily affected in-person and online taxpayer services. 

The technical malfunction was the result of a broken pipe, which required air conditioning in parts of the Annapolis government complex to be turned off. The agency maintains automatic shutdown procedures to protect the overheating of critical equipment and to ensure data safety.

The system interruption extended throughout the Annapolis complex, statewide branch offices, call centers, and services accessed online.

The Comptroller's Office thanks the Department of General Services for their efforts to quickly resolve the problem and appreciates the public's patience.
