 Maine: New exemption takes effect July 2014.

Beginning July 1, 2014, sales of adaptive equipment for installation in or on a motor vehicle to make it operable or accessible by a person with a disability are exempt from Maine sales tax when made to, or at the request of, a person with a disability.

In order for the exemption to apply, the buyer must have a disability plate or placard issued by the Secretary of State. In addition, the buyer must supply the seller with a properly completed Maine Revenue Services website.
