Announcing the availability of online boat registration renewal through Maine's Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife at http://www.maine.gov/online/boat.
IF&W is pleased to announce the availability of an online boat registration renewal system. The online system, available at http://www.maine.gov/online/boat allows residents or non-residents to renew their Maine boat registration online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Payment for registration renewal fees and municipal excise tax fees can be made in one secure transaction using a Visa, MasterCard, or Discover credit or debit card. In order to use the online renewal service, your legal residence town or, for non-residents, the town in which the boat is primarily moored or docked, must participate in the online service. Participation by municipalities is voluntary, but is necessary in order for local excise tax dollars to be processed online and remitted to the town. Currently, 117 municipalities participate in the online service. To see if your town participates in the service, please visit http://www.maine.gov/online/boat. If you do not see the town listed, please complete a "Request Participation" form which will be forwarded directly to your town officials.
