AUGUSTA, Maine — Gov. Janet Mills wants to clear up some confusion on Maine’s tax deadline.
She says Maine’s deadline to file state taxes is still April 15th.
The federal government extended the deadline to file federal taxes to July 15.
Governor Mills says she hasn’t made a decision about changing the April deadline, but she says:
“We are conferring among ourselves and with our own treasuries and revenue services about what we can do and how we can accommodate the federal government’s extension without sacrificing state finances.”
