Municipal Matters: Governor Extends April 1st Application Date for Current Land Use Property Tax Programs

In Brief 

In a second Executive Order involving Maine’s property tax laws, Governor Mills has extended the April 1st application date for Maine’s Current Land Use Tax Programs due to the COVID-19 civil emergency. The annual application deadline is adjusted to July 1, 2020, for the following property tax programs:

  • Farm and Open Space Tax Program (36 M.R.S. § 1109),
  • Tree Growth Tax Program (36 M.R.S. § 579), and
  • Working Waterfront Tax Programs (36 M.R.S. 1133).


What’s Next

Assessors should therefore continue to process applications up to and including July 1, 2020. Note that the new deadlines for the Current Land Use Programs are distinct from the extension the Governor granted for certain property tax exemption applications, which are summarized here.

Please contact N. Joel Moser at (207) 228-7155 or jmoser@bernsteinshur.com with any questions regarding current land use applications or property tax assessment.
