Drake Accounting®: How do I prepare and file the Maine Unemployment Contributions Report?  


For filing to the Maine Department of Labor (DOL), DAS produces:

  • A PDF of form UC-1, Unemployment Contributions Report.
  • A .txt file for e-file.

See Related Links below for required setup information before creating the state wage report.

 To prepare the UC-1:

  • Select the Employees menu, then select State Tax & Wage Forms.
  • Make sure ME is selected, then select UC-1 from the Forms droplist.
  • Select the applicable quarter.
  • Review the form and make any necessary entries or edits.
  • Make sure the e-File checkbox is marked (if e-filing), then select Save/Print.


 Save/Print creates a PDF copy of the form that can be printed and paper-filed.  If e-File was marked, a .txt file for upload to the Maine REEMPLOYME website is also created.

To e-file:

  • Log in to the ME REEMPLOYME website.
  • Follow the menu options to upload the wage file.
  • The file for upload can be found by browsing to the drive where DAS is installed > DrakeAccounting20YY > Clients > client code > EFile > ME > MEUC1 and selecting the file named MEUC1_YYYY-MM-DD_HR_MIN_SEC.txt (where YYYY-MM-DD_HR_MIN_SEC is the date and time of file creation.
