I would like to know if it is safe to repot Japanese Maples any time of year. I know it is best to plant/repot during the dormant season but would like to do it now.

You can repot your maple at any time, providing you give it a little TLC. Protect it from direct sunshine for a few weeks until it becomes established, try not to damage any roots during the move, and water it thoroughly once each week so it's not too stressed by the move. Best wishes with your maple!
