Maine State Income Tax Deductions

Income tax deductions are expenses that can be deducted from your gross pre-tax income before determining your taxable income.

Maine Standard Deduction

The Maine standard deduction is $6,100.00 for individuals and $10,150.00 for married couples filing jointly. The standard deduction may be chosen instead of filing an itemized deduction on your Maine tax return.

Maine Personal Exemptions

Maine's personal income tax exemptions include a personal exemption of $3,900.00. You can deduct one single exemption from your gross income if you are responsible for supporting yourself financially.

Maine Dependent Deduction

Maine has a dependent exemption of $3,900.00. You may claim one dependent exemption for each of the children, relatives, or others who live with and are supported by you as described § 152 of the IRC (Internal Revenue Code).

Maine Itemized Deductions

Maine allows itemized deductions, and you can claim the same itemized deductions on your Maine tax return as you do on your Federal tax return. You must choose between itemizing your deductions and choosing the Maine standard deduction, so it's generally only worth itemizing your deductions if your itemized total is more then the Maine and Federal standard deductions.
