EFW2 files must be transmitted electronically via the Maine Employers Electronic Reporting System (MEETRS) on the MRS web site.

If there are data errors or other problems, the file will be rejected with an error message providing you with the reason and location of the error. Electronic files may be tested with the MEETRS application by selecting the Validate Only button. The user needs to register with the MEETRS website to test the file.

Maine does NOT accept Prior Year Filing. The current year filing must be uploaded before December 1.
