Maine Other Additions

Answer

Income Modifications - Other Additions

Income and deductions are generally treated the same for Maine tax purposes as treated for federal tax purposes. However, certain federal and state laws may require different tax treatment of these items. These differences require adjustments, or modifications, to federal income to calculate Maine taxable income. See Form 1040ME, Schedule 1.

Addition modifications are required for items of income that are not included in federal income but are subject to Maine individual income tax or to reverse a federal deduction not allowed for Maine tax purposes.
