Taxes & Budget
Taxes are how we come together to pay for the things that build thriving communities and a higher quality of life for all Mainers.
Maine’s budget reflects our states priorities and taxes are how we pay for it. Maine’s tax code must ensure everyone, including the wealthiest and corporations, pays their fair share. By ensuring Maine has the resources it needs, we can build a strong, inclusive economy in which all Mainers can thrive.
