New Veterans Property Tax Credit

A new disabled veteran benefit was enacted earlier this year through LD1986.  This is an additional benefit under the Property Tax Fairness Credit (36 M.R.S. § 5219-KK), which is an income tax credit handled by the Income Tax Division of Maine Revenue Services.  The credit is based on a veteran’s property tax, but it is claimed on the taxpayer’s Form 1040ME.  Here is the web page describing the credit: https://www.maine.gov/revenue/taxes/tax-relief-credits-programs/income-tax-credits/property-tax-fairness-credit

 

Any specific questions about the program should be directed to the Income Tax Division at 207-626-8475 or income.tax@maine.gov.

Medical Alert Buttons!

A Request from the Rescue Squad:
If you or a family member own a medical alert button, please update all the information with the company that services it.
This makes dispatching and responding to calls when the button is activated much more efficient.
