Amazon to Begin Collecting Maine Sales Tax

Mar 20, 2017

State officials are applauding a decision by Amazon to begin collecting and remitting Maine sales tax beginning April 1.

Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner George Gervais says Maine businesses can go toe-to-toe with the very best out-of-state companies provided they are competing on an equal playing field.

In a written statement Monday afternoon, Gervais says that Amazon’s decision is an important first step in leveling the playing field.
