Sending Payments to Treasury
Taxpayers are required to meet certain obligations under Michigan law. You are responsible for filing a timely tax return. Payment of tax due must be included with your return. It is important to resolve any outstanding tax you owe as soon as possible. Penalty and interest will be added to your debt and will continue to accrue until the amount is paid in full.
If you do not pay your taxes, you may receive a PROPOSED TAX DUE, NOTICE OF INTENT TO ASSESS, and/or a BILL FOR TAXES DUE (Final Assessment). This is your opportunity to resolve the debt prior to having the debt referred to the Office of Collections by submitting supporting documentation to dispute the notice or paying the tax due amount in full.
Once you have received an assessment number on a Notice of Intent to Assess/Final Bill for Taxes Due notice you may be eligible for an installment agreement/payment plan arrangements (form 990) with the Office of Collections.
Payments can be made prior to receiving your Notice of Intent/Final Bill for Taxes Due. Submit any late or partial payments by check or money order to Michigan Department of Treasury, P.O. Box 30727, Lansing, MI 48929. The check or money order should be made payable to ‘State of Michigan'
Treasury does not currently accept credit cards for payment of taxes due. Electronic payments are not accepted until final assessments have been issued. If you have received a final assessment visit Collections e-Service for information on electronic payments.
Payments of any kind are not accepted at Treasury's Customer Service number (517-636-4486).
To make a payment on your taxes before a final assessment has been issued, be sure to include your social security number and the tax year on the check or money order made payable to “State of Michigan”
