9. Does Maine require a year-end reconciliation of income tax withholding liability and copies of W-2s and 1099s?
Yes. All employers and nonwage payers who withhold Maine income tax from payments to employees or other recipients must file a year-end reconciliation, Form W-3ME. You may file Form W-3ME electronically at http://www.maine.gov/revenue/netfile/gateway2.htm or you may download the form at http://www.maine.gov/revenue/forms/ .
MRS does not accept paper copies of payee statements (Forms W-2 and 1099). You may file Forms W-2 electronically using the Maine Employers Electronic Tax Reporting System (“MEETRS”). For more information about electronic filing of Forms W-2, see http://www.maine.gov/revenue/magmedia/magmedia.html . If you are a non-wage withholder who received an exception from the requirement to complete Schedule 2 on your quarterly return, you must submit Form 1099 and W-2G information directly to MRS on magnetic media. Otherwise, you may choose to submit Forms 1099 and W-2G data to MRS through the IRS under the Combined Federal/State Filing Program. See MRS specifications for Forms 1099 and W-2G at http://www.maine.gov/revenue/netfile/gateway2.htm .
