Michigan Individual Income Tax — e-File 2014
Last year, 3.8 million Michigan taxpayers opted for the safest, fastest and easiest way to submit their individual income tax returns – Michigan e-file.
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Individual Income Tax (IIT) Modernized e-File (MeF) system will be unavailable beginning November 22, 2014 for end of year maintenance.
The Internal Revenue Service has not yet announced the date they plan to open the IIT 2015 filing season. Michigan anticipates retrieving and acknowledging IIT e-file returns on the same day the IRS opens for e-file. E-filing and choosing Direct Deposit is the fastest way to receive your Michigan refund.
