(Augusta, ME) – Just yesterday the U.S. Treasury Department and Internal Revenue Service announced the federal tax filing deadline has been extended to May 17, 2021. Maine Senate Republicans are now urging Governor Janet Mills to follow suit and extend our State’s tax filing deadline as well.
Many Maine citizens and businesses need time to accurately prepare their filings to comply with the many changes that have recently been passed with the State’s budget in addition to the numerous federal changes
Pushing the tax deadline out to May 17th will allow people and businesses to gather all pertinent information and file accurate tax returns.
