The Maine Income Tax Referendum, also known as Proposed Constitutional Amendment No. 3, was on the September 13, 1920 ballot in Maine as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment, where it was defeated. The measure would have provided that the Legislature should have the power to lay and collect taxes on incomes from any derived source.[1][2] This would have amended Section 8 of Article IX of the Maine Constitution.[3]
