INSTRUCTIONS
This tax return is for reporting purchases from someone not engaged in the business of selling. The person seeking registration must present a bill of sale at the time
of registration when completing this return. To register property in this State, fully complete this tax return and submit it to the appropriate registering authority,
along with payment of any tax due and the applicable vehicle registration forms. For property which will not be registered in this State, fully complete this tax return
and mail it to Maine Revenue Services, P.O. Box 1060, Augusta, ME 04332-1060 with a check or money order payable to the Treasurer, State of Maine for any tax due.
Do not send currency, stamps, or coins. Maine Use Tax applies to: (1) purchases at retail sale made outside this State which, if they had occurred in this State, would
have been subject to sales tax, and (2) the purchase of a motor vehicle, snowmobile, all-terrain vehicle, watercraft, trailer, truck camper, or special mobile equipment
(except a farm tractor, lumber harvesting vehicle, or loader) from a person who is not engaged in the business of selling that kind of property.
Line 1 - FULL PURCHASE PRICE: The following are part of the purchase price of a vehicle whether separately stated or not:
The value of all property or services exchanged for the vehicle, except a creditable trade-in (see Line 2); the amount of a loan assumed or debt forgiven by the
purchaser; manufacturer’s rebates; manufacturers’ and importer’s excise taxes; motors, extra equipment and accessories purchased with the vehicle; shipment to the
location of the seller; dealer prep, documentation, processing, conditioning, commissioning, and similar fees; delivery by the seller to the purchaser; extended
warranties on automobiles and trucks; and any other services performed by the seller prior to passage of title. Do not include insurance or finance charges.
Line 2 - ALLOWANCE FOR TRADE-IN: Property traded-in can be used to reduce the amount subject to tax only if both (A) and (B) apply:
(A) the vehicle purchased must be one of the following 4 kinds: (1) Motor Vehicles, including motor homes, snowmobiles, and atv’s; (2) Watercraft; (3) Special Mobile
Equipment, including farm tractors, lumber harvesting vehicles or loaders; (4) Trailers, including camper trailers and truck campers, AND (B) the vehicle traded-in
must be of the same kind as the vehicle purchased. When the property traded-in cannot be used to reduce the amount subject to tax, its value must be included in the
“Full Purchase Price”.
Line 5 - EXEMPTIONS: Exemptions claimed will be reviewed by Maine Revenue Services.
A. EXEMPT ORGANIZATIONS
If the purchaser is an organization that has been issued a certificate of exemption by Maine Revenue Services (hospitals, schools, churches, etc.), check box ‘ A ’ and
write the organization’s exemption number in the space provided. This is a 5 digit number preceded by an “E”. Do not enter a federal identification number or a sales
tax registration number. ____________________________________
B. PREVIOUSLY USED BY YOU OUTSIDE OF MAINE
If the property is an automobile, snowmobile, or all-terrain vehicle and was purchased and used by you in another state and you were a permanent legal resident of
the other state at the time of purchase, the purchase is not subject to Maine use tax. If the property is a watercraft and you were a permanent legal resident of another
state at the time of purchase, the purchase is not subject to Maine use tax if the watercraft was registered and used outside the State by the purchaser and was not
present in Maine for more than 30 days during the 12 months following its purchase. If the watercraft was present in Maine for more than 30 days during the 12
months following its purchase, use tax is due on 40% of the “Net Amount Subject to Tax”. In all other cases, property that is purchased and used by the present owner
outside Maine for more than 12 months before being used in Maine, is not subject to Maine use tax. If you claim exemption on the basis of prior use, check box “B”
and fill in the required information. Any out-of-state registration must be provided to the registering agent.

C. TAX PAID IN ANOTHER JURISDICTION

any Maine tax that may be due. If credit is claimed for tax paid to another jurisdiction, check box “C” and fill in the required information. A copy of the bill of sale,
invoice or receipt for payment of tax to the other jurisdiction must be submitted to the registering agent.
