Michigan Treasury Online: History of Sales, Use and Withholding Changes

Please do not attempt to file 2014 Sales, Use or Withholding (SUW) tax returns or payments using Michigan Treasury Online (MTO). MTO is only available for SUW tax payments and returns for file periods 2015 and greater. All forms for tax year 2014 and prior have been mailed and remain available for printing at www.michigan.gov/treasury.

January 2018: Michigan Department of Treasury is committed to keeping your information secure. Beginning January 16, 2018, as MTO users log into their accounts, they will be required to select and provide responses to four (4) security questions. Your responses to these basic questions (such as what is your mother’s maiden name?) will be stored and used to assist in password resets and to enhance user security with MTO. While the questions are mandatory, this is a one-time event and none of the questions require sensitive identity related answers such as social security numbers, driver’s license numbers, or  previous addresses. Thank you for helping us keep your information secure!
