If you file a federal income tax return, you should also file a Michigan income tax return. You are required to file a Michigan income tax return if the federal adjusted gross income (AGI) is greater than the personal exemption amount on the Michigan income tax return (MI-1040).
Michigan has one income tax form, MI-1040 . The MI-1040 is used for any filer, residents, nonresidents and part-year residents. The MI-1040 is also used when a federal EZ is filed.
Current and prior year Michigan tax forms may be obtained by one of the following methods:
