“Maine already has a small working-age population, 844,170 in 2018. Unfortunately, that’s down 2.3 percent from 2013. In terms of business tax climate, Maine leans toward the less favorable side, ranking poorly for its corporate taxes and property taxes. But Maine’s most foreboding figure is its startup early survival rate. Only 72.24 percent of startups survive their first year in Maine, the second-worst rate in the study,” the study notes.
