Maine Revenue Services has updated some forms and instructions relevant to withholding.

Form 941BN-ME, which is completed to report a change in your withholding account, contact information or to cancel your withholding account, is now exclusively used for income tax withholding accounts; previously, it was also used for unemployment contributions accounts. There is no update to the information requested by MRS for reporting changes.

The Electronic Funds Transfer Application, for taxpayers who intend to remit payments via ACH Teledebit or ACH Credit, has been revised. Aside from the removal of references to unemployment compensation tax, there are no substantive revisions.

The EFT Application Instructions have also been revised to remove references to unemployment compensation taxes.
