Maine Use Tax


If you purchased items for use in Maine from retailers who did not collect the Maine sales tax (such as businesses in other states or countries and unregistered mail order and internet sellers), you may owe Maine use tax on those items. The tax rate for purchases in 2021 is 5.5%. If you paid another state’s sales or use tax on any purchase, that amount may be credited against the Maine use tax due on that purchase. If you do not know the exact amount of Maine use tax that you owe, either multiply your Maine adjusted gross income from line 16 by .04% (.0004) or use the table.

NOTE: For items that cost $1,000 or more, you must add the tax on those items to the percentage or table amount. Use tax on items that cost more than $5,000 must be reported on an individual use tax return by the 15th day of the month following its purchase.
