Maine Revenue Services Rulemaking Activity
MRS rulemaking proposals in process:
New Rule 401 - Service Provider Tax - Return and Payment of Tax
MRS is proposing to adopt a new Rule 401, which establishes requirements for the filing of tax returns and the payment of the Maine Service Provider Tax pursuant to 36 MRSA §2554. The proposed rule may be seen on the MRS website. The provisions of the rule are very similar to the provisions of Rule 304, which covers sales tax returns and payments. Comments are due by November 6, 2006 and should be directed to David Bauer, 24 State House Station, Augusta , ME 04333 or via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
New Rule 324 - ConnectME Tax Reimbursements
MRS is proposing to adopt a new Rule 324 providing guidance for taxpayers on how to qualify and apply for reimbursement of Maine sales and use taxes under 36 MRSA §2017. A rule on this topic was mandated by the Legislature in PL 2005, Ch. 665, the purpose of which is to facilitate the expansion of broadband and wireless service throughout the State of Maine. Comments are due by November 6, 2006 and should be directed to Scott Schul, 24 State House Station, Augusta , ME 04333 or via e-mail to email@example.com .

Amendments to Rule 302 - Sales to Government Agencies & Exempt Organizations
RS is proposing to adopt amendments to Rule 302, which has been in place for many years and serves to explain the administration of sales tax exemptions pertaining to government agencies and exempt organizations. Various minor amendments are being proposed, none of which change current administrative practice in any way. The proposed rule may be seen on the MRS website. Comments are due by November 13, 2006 and should be directed to David Bauer, 24 State House Station, Augusta , ME 04333 or via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org .
