What is use tax? How do I calculate my Maine use tax?

If you purchased items for use in Maine from retailers who did not collect Maine sales tax (such as businesses in other states and many mail order and internet sellers), you may owe Maine use tax.

Multiply all applicable purchases by 5.5% to find your 2019 Maine use tax.

Note: Use tax on items that cost more than $5,000 must be reported on an individual use tax return  by the 15th day of the month following its purchase.
