GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT FILING TAXES:
Tax Day has been moved from April 15 to July 15. All taxpayers and businesses will have this additional time to file for refunds and credits and make payments without interest or penalties.
Tax filers with simple federal and Maine returns and household incomes of $56,000 or less can call CA$H Maine at (207) 788-7954 to get a link to the CA$H Maine tax filing program and contact information for a tax preparer to answer questions. The taxpayer enters their own information.
Tax filers who file their taxes with CA$H Maine either in person or online also receive guidance about savings, classes, and other resources from a financial guide. Use CA$H Maine’s Money Guide for information to help you Set Up Your Budget, Reduce Your Debt, and Build Your Savings.
All CA$H Maine tax sites have suspended in-person services until further notice. Many CA$H Maine tax sites will be reopening for tax preparation when able to.
Confirm payment type: direct deposit or check; and
Enter bank account information for direct deposit if the IRS doesn't have your direct deposit information and hasn't sent your payment yet.
