Resolution

  • Avalara does not file this type of tax at the current time.

  • FYI, and per Instructional Bulletin No. 55, Service Provider Tax, Maine Revenue Services "Unlike the sales tax, service provider tax is not levied on the consumer, but is instead imposed upon the provider (seller). If a seller includes the tax on a customer’s bill, it must be shown as a separate line item and identified as a “service provider tax”."

    It is important to note that this tax is in addition to required sales/use tax obligations.
