Maine Additions to Income

Income From Municipal And State Bonds, Other Than Maine

Enter the income from municipal and state bonds, other than Maine, that is not included in your federal adjusted gross income.

For example: enter interest from City of New York bonds on this line. However, do not enter interest from Portland, Maine bonds.

Maine Public Employees Retirement System Contributions

Enter the amount of your 2016 Maine Public Employees Retirement System contributions on this line. See your Maine W-2 form.


Bonus Depreciation Add-Back

An addition modification is required equal to the net increase in depreciation resulting from bonus depreciation claimed on the federal return. To calculate this addition modification, the amount of the add-back on line 1f must be subtracted from the basis of property placed in service in 2016. Then MACRS depreciation must be calculated on the remaining property basis. The amount entered on this line equals the amount that the federal depreciation claimed, less the amount on line 1f, exceeds the recalculated MACRS depreciation. If the recalculated MACRS depreciation is greater than the adjusted federal depreciation, no addition modification is required.


Fiduciary Adjustment

If applicable, enter your share of a fiduciary adjustment (addition modifications) relating to income from an estate or trust (36 M.R.S.A. § 5122(3)). You must attach a copy of your federal Schedule K-1.


Other Additions to Income

* The amount of loss, deductions and other expenses of a financial institution subject to Maine franchise tax that are included in your federal adjusted gross income due to an ownership share in the financial institution that is a partnership, S corporation, or entity disregarded as separate from its owner.
