Questions & Answers

What types of income aren't taxed if my nonmilitary spouse is in Maine only because of military orders?

The following types of income for a military member's spouse are NOT taxed by Maine:

  • Wages
  • Income from services performed in Maine (for example, doctors, lawyers, accountants, carpenters, painters, hairdressers, piano teachers, etc.)
  • Self-employment income (if the spouse is engaged in a personal service business that doesn't make, buy, or sell goods to produce income)
You shouldn't enter any of these types of income for the nonmilitary spouse in the Maine amount column.

If your nonmilitary spouse earned any other type of income in Maine, he or she should include that income in the Maine amount column.
