Programs: Using Taxation for Access

What tax-related programs exist that can be used for access?

Current Use Program for Working Waterfront.
Farm and open space current use taxation programs, when applied to eligible waterfront parcels, can maintain land uses that allow access to the water. The Current Use Program for Working Waterfronts offers owners of commercial fishing-related property a reduction in their assessed value based on certain critera. For more information about these programs, please see Maine Revenue Service.
