Business taxpayers are reminded that they must submit their wage statements and other income record forms -- such as W-2s, 1099-NEC and 1099-R -- to the Michigan Department of Treasury on or before Jan. 31, 2021.

Business taxpayers may electronically upload their wage statements and income record forms by using Michigan Treasury Online (MTO). Employers with more than 250 employees must file their wage statements electronically.

Business taxpayers can submit their 1099-MISC income record forms on or before Feb. 28 for paper filers and on or before March 31 for electronic filers. 

While certain wage statements and income record forms are due on or before Jan. 31, 2021, the Sales, Use and Withholding Taxes Annual Return (Form 5081) is still due on Feb. 28, 2021. Wage statements and income record forms filed on or before the Jan. 31 due date need not be submitted again with Form 5081.

“Business taxpayers should keep these deadlines in mind when submitting wage statements and filing returns,” said Deputy State Treasurer Glenn White, who oversees Treasury’s Tax Administration programs. “If deadlines are missed, there could be processing delays and penalties applied.”
