State gives extension for some tax returns

AUGUSTA — Some of the state’s taxpayers have been given a short extension on their filing due date as a result of the recent ice storm.

Gov. Angus King and the executive director of Maine Revenue Services, Brian Mahaney, announced Tuesday an extension of time to file and pay state tax returns due Jan. 15. The extension, which effects those filing December sales and use tax returns and individual income tax quarterly estimate returns, is to Feb. 2.

“Taxpayers are not required to file any special forms to get the extension,” Mahaney said. “All they need to do is make sure the postmark on the envelope is on or before Feb. 2.”

Mahaney also encouraged those who are able to file by Jan. 15 to do so.
