Tax Refund Programs

PROPERTY TAX FAIRNESS CREDIT

The Maine Residents Property Tax and Rent Refund "Circuitbreaker" Program was repealed as part of the enacted state budget for claims beginning on or after August 1, 2013.  This Program was replaced by a refundable Property Tax Fairness Credit that can be claimed on the Maine Individual Income Tax Form.   
 
This program is not administered by the Town of Windham. To claim the credit, you must file Form 1040ME and Schedule PTFC/STFC for the tax year during which the property tax or rent was paid. For help, call 207-624-9784. For more info, please visit: Property Tax Fairness Credit Summary.
