What should I do if my return was rejected?
If a federal return is rejected the accompanying Michigan and/or City of Detroit return(s) will also be rejected. If the error is one that can be corrected, both returns may be retransmitted to the Internal Revenue Service. If the federal return cannot be corrected, the State return can be retransmitted separately as a State Standalone return if supported by the software. There is no limit on how many times a State Standalone return can be retransmitted.
Note: If you do not correct the error, your return cannot be accepted or processed by the Michigan Department of Treasury.
