I have a large online business and most of the times I have to get cash ( 8k or 9k) and deposit to my suppliers. I have lots of deposit or withdraw for high amounts every month.
Will I get approved or waste of the time?
Maryland is among the toughest state's in the country to get a permit. As a small business owner that is required to carry money, you may have a chance. Maryland is notorious for saying no to just about everyone , even those who seem to fit the statute but may be on the fence. It's probably a waste of time, but you'll only be out a bit of cash at the worst. May as well try.
