MMA is a proud supporter of Opportunity Maine, a program that was passed by the Maine State Legislature in the summer of 2007. It became effective on January 1, 2008. The program provides a state income tax credit for student loan payments made by degree earners who live, work and pay taxes in Maine after graduation. As an alternative, Maine businesses can make the educational loan payments for their employees and then those Maine businesses can claim the tax credit. The Financial Aid Office wants to be sure that all students are aware of the program and take the necessary steps to enroll in the program. To learn more, click here.
