12. My spouse has passed away. You sent a refund with both our names on it. What do I do?
Take the check and a copy of the death certificate to your bank and try to cash or deposit the check.
If your bank will not accept the refund check, you must complete Maine Form 1310ME, Statement of Person Claiming Refund Due a Deceased Taxpayer, to have the check reissued in your name only. Call our forms line at (207) 624-7894 to request Form 1310ME. The number is also listed in your income tax booklet.
Return the uncashed check and the completed Form 1310ME to Maine Revenue Services, Income/Estate Tax Division. Allow 10 to 12 weeks from the date you return the check to Maine Revenue Services for us to issue a new refund check.
