General Instructions

Maine individual income tax returns are due by April 15, in most years. If you cannot file by that date, you can get a Maine tax extension.

Maine personal extensions are automatic, which means there is no form or application to submit. A Maine tax extension will give you 6 more months to file, moving the deadline to October 15.

Note that a tax extension does not give you more time to file your return. To avoid penalty charges, your Maine tax liability must be fully paid by the original due date (April 15). In order to receive Maine's automatic extension, you must pay at least 90% of your Maine income tax by the original deadline.

You can make a state extension payment using Maine Form 1040EXT-ME (Extension Payment Voucher for Individual Income Tax). Or you can make a tax payment online via Maine EZ Pay:
