Maine - Open for business!
I always knew Maine had a personal property tax on businesses property such as chairs, desks, equipment, etc, but this is the first time I've heard of an inspection of your property by an assessor entering your business and writing it all down.
These businesses had to pay sales taxes on buying the equipment and then on top of everything, they need to pay a tax on owning it each year? What a ridiculous tax. It needs to end.
