The tax burden on Maine businesses is too high, and the tax structure here discourages growth. Maine cannot continue with an outdated and anti-growth system of taxation. To that end, the Chamber supports:
  • No increase in, and ideally a reduction of, the overall tax burden for Maine people and businesses.
  • Tax policies that encourage regionalization.
  • Maintain and build on the progress made toward lower state income taxes.
  • Tax reform that will reduce the volatility of tax revenues.
  • Continued scrutiny of state spending and government efficiency.
