  Individual Income Tax
Is military pay exempt from Michigan income tax?

As a Michigan resident, you are required to file a Michigan income tax return ( MI-1040 ) regardless of where your income is earned. Michigan does not tax active duty pay. However, most interest, dividends, most capital gains and other income received by a Michigan resident are subject to Michigan income tax. You should file a MI-1040 and a Michigan Schedule 1 as a Michigan resident and subtract your military pay to determine Michigan taxable income.
