2011 Tax Return Filing Due Date
Maine will conform to the federal due date change for 2011 individual income tax returns. The due date for federal tax returns ordinarily due April 15, 2012, is being changed to Tuesday, April 17, 2012 due to the normal due date being Sunday, April 15 and the observance of Emancipation Day in DC on Monday, April 16, 2012.
Additionally, Monday, April 16, 2012 falls on Patriot's Day, a holiday observed in Maine. Therefore, the due date for other Maine forms that have a statutorily defined due date of April 15, 2012 or April 16, 2012 will also be extended to Tuesday, April 17, 2012.
