Maine’s AccessAble Home Tax Credit Program
Beginning in tax year 2017, Maine has an AccessAble Home Tax Credit program that allows Maine residents with a physical disability or hardship who earn under $55,000 per year to make a home modification and claim a tax credit.
In 2016, the National MS Society’s Greater New England Chapter introduced legislation that would create this tax credit program and it successfully passed the legislature and is law. The credit can be claimed for work that is completed in 2017 calendar year. The credit will be noted on 2017 Tax forms.
