A: If you have a landlord/tenant situation, you want to review this: https://www.mainelegislature.org/legis/statutes/14/title14sec6013.html
If not, I suggest you review this: https://www.maine.gov/treasurer/Maine%20UP%20Reporting%20Manual.pdf
If this was a rental-purchase situation, you will want to review this: https://legislature.maine.gov/statutes/9-A/title9-Ach11.pdf
Finally, you should always review any written documentation you have concerning these transactions.
