Form 1040ME-PV: Maine Individual Income Tax Payment Voucher

Form 1040ME-PV, also known as the Maine Individual Income Tax Payment Voucher, is a document used by Maine residents to submit payment for their state income taxes alongside an electronically filed tax return. It's essentially a payment slip that accompanies your electronically submitted Form 1040ME (Maine Individual Income Tax Return).

Who Needs Form 1040ME-PV?

You'll only need Form 1040ME-PV if you:

  • Filed your Maine individual income tax return electronically (e-filed).
  • Have a remaining balance due after accounting for any federal or state tax withholding.

Why Use Form 1040ME-PV?

While Maine encourages electronic filing of tax returns, it doesn't offer an electronic payment option for the state portion of your taxes. This voucher acts as a bridge, allowing you to easily submit your payment along with your electronically filed return.
