How can we help?

New company registration in Maine

Income tax withholding

You can register for income tax withholding at the Maine Revenue Services registration site.

Once you complete the registration, you'll be mailed a confirmation letter with your Withholding Account Number in about 20 days. The last two digits of your number are usually: 00 unless your number was reissued to the business.

If you have questions, please contact the agency at (207) 624-9784.

Unemployment tax

Most companies are liable for state unemployment when they have one or more workers in different weeks in a calendar year or payroll of $1500 in a calendar quarter. You can find out if you're liable and register online by going to the ReEmployME site. You should receive your Employer Account Number and unemployment tax rate in about 5-7 days.

Experience rate

When entering your rate in Gusto, please do not include the CSSF (Competitive Skills Scholarship Fund Program) or UPAF (Unemployment Program Administrative Fund) rates as we account for them automatically.
