Franchise Tax

The Maine franchise tax is imposed on banks and financial institutions. The franchise taxpayer can choose between two tax options. Option 1 is a two-part tax consisting of 1% of Maine income and 0.008% of assets. Option 2 is a tax on assets only and is imposed at 0.039% of Maine assets. The tax is imposed on all financial institutions with Maine income, even if the entity is organized as a pass-through organization.
