On March 27, 2020, Governor Whitmer signed Executive Order 2020-26, extending state and city income tax filing and payment deadlines for three months, to align with federal changes. The extension applies to state and city individual income tax filing deadlines and payments, as well as state and city corporate income tax filing deadlines and payments.
- Any state or city individual or corporate income tax returns and payments originally due on 4/15/20 are now due on 7/15/20.
- Any state or city corporate income tax returns and payments with an original due date of 4/30/20 are now due on 7/31/20.
First-quarter state and city estimated tax payments with a due date of 4/15/20 or 4/30/20 also are extended to either 7/15/20 or 7/31/20. The extension applies to both individual and corporate estimates.
As with the federal changes, Michigan state and city extensions are automatic. Taxpayers do not need to file any additional forms or contact the Michigan Department of Treasury to qualify.
