Maine Public Library Fund State Income Tax Check off
For the first time the 2012 Maine State Income Tax form CP (Voluntary Contributions) includes a check-off for the Maine Public Library Fund. By law all contributions received must be used to help Maine public libraries. This fund, administered by the Maine State Library, has the potential to help public libraries like Walker Memorial Library with new eBook content, interlibrary loan support, continuing education, and many other services.
Interested taxpayers can check #8 Maine Public Library Fund on Schedule CP to make a donation which will mean so much to Maine’s public libraries.
Support Maine Library services by completing the check off portion on your taxes. Thank you for your support!
