4. Does Maine conform to the federal law and regulations regarding the alternate valuation date?
Yes. Maine accepts the federal alternate valuation date, even for gap estates. Alternate valuation is not automatic. It must be elected by checking the box for the alternate valuation election on page 2 of federal Form 706. The election, once made, cannot be changed. When filing the Maine estate tax return, a copy of the entire federal return or pro forma return must be attached. Also, write “Alternate Valuation Date Elected” across the top of Form 706ME.
