Beginning November 1, 2017, buyers can request a sales tax credit or refund from Maine Revenue Services (MRS) without having to first seek the refund or credit from the seller, as previously required. To bypass the seller, the buyer must submit an affidavit to MRS stating the refund or credit will not be requested from the seller.

Currently, buyers can only request a refund or credit directly from the state after first seeking a refund from the seller. If a seller refuses to issue a buyer a refund, the buyer may submit a request stating that seller refused to refund the overpaid tax.

Effective, November 1, 2017, buyers can skip going to the seller and go directly to the state for a sales tax refund or credit.
