Submitting files

Files must be submitted electronically via the Maine Employers Electronic Reporting System (MEETRS) on the MRS web site at: Upon successful transmission of the file, a confirmation number will be displayed. It is suggested that the confirmation number be saved for future reference.

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.

The filing deadline for electronic submission of 1099 and W-2G files to MRS is January 31 of the following calendar year. If this day falls on a weekend or holiday, the filing deadline is the next business day. Earlier filing is encouraged to help combat identity theft and refund fraud.

At this time, Maine Revenue Services (MRS) does not, and has no plans to, require copies of, or data related to, Forms 1099-NEC to be submitted to MRS.

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