Maine Introduces Bill to Reduce Excise Taxes for Motor Vehicles

By Steve McDonald

Legislation was introduced to reduce motor-vehicle excise tax rates by 10% each year beginning with the 2018 registration year until the rates reach half of the current rates in 2022 and subsequent years. Under the law, an excise tax is levied for the privilege of operating a motor vehicle or camper trailer on the public ways.
