Does the Michigan Department of Treasury have a form comparable to the U.S. 1041 (Income Tax Return for Estates and Trusts)? When do I need to file and what is the tax rate?

The Michigan Department of Treasury does have an MI-1041 form, (Michigan Fiduciary Income Tax Return). This form must be filed if a U.S. 1041 has been filed even if there is no Michigan income tax due. For the 2016 tax year, the tax rate for the fiduciary filers is 4.25%.

Current and prior year Michigan tax forms may be obtained by downloading the desired form(s) from this Web site 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

Note: Some of the forms can be downloaded, completed, printed and mailed. These forms cannot be submitted electronically to the Michigan Department of Treasury.
