12. Why does my 1099-G form show use tax, voluntary contributions, or park pass purchases?
You indicated on your income tax return for the year shown on your 1099-G form that you owed Maine use tax, you purchased one or more Maine park passes, or you elected to voluntarily contribute money to one or more of the following organizations on Schedule CP: Democratic Party, Green Independent Party, Republican Party, Endangered and Nongame Wildlife Fund (Chickadee Check-off), Maine Children’s Trust, the Bone Marrow Screening Fund, the Companion Animal Sterilization Fund, the Maine Military Family Relief Fund, the Maine Veterans' Memorial Cemetery Maintenance Fund or the Maine Asthma & Lung Disease Research Fund. These amounts are overpayments of tax and must still be reported to you on Form 1099-G. The fact that you used the refund to pay use tax, to purchase park passes or to make voluntary contributions doesn't change that you had an overpayment for the year on your tax return. Even though you may not have actually received a check, an overpayment transaction took place, and you are subject to the same federal reporting requirements as if you had received a refund check.
