We encourage taxpayers to take full advantage of the various programs available to ease the impact of the property tax. Some of the most common exemptions include:
- Farmland and Open Space classification
- Tree Growth
- Veterans and their widows
- Legally Blind
Applications for the above exemptions must be made before April 1 of the current tax year. The Business Equipment Tax Refund (BETR) and Business Equipment Tax Exemption (BETE) programs are available to commercial properties meeting certain established criteria.
*BETE filings need to be submitted to the Assessor's Office by April 30, 2017. No BETE filings will be accepted after April 30th.
*Please provide ALL homestead and other exemption applications prior to April 1st
per state law for us to determine if you qualify for additional tax
savings. Please mail or drop-off originals. Faxes will not be accepted.
April 1 fixes the status and situs of all taxable property in the state. (36 M.R.S.A S 502)
