- 1. Who do I need to notify if I have filed bankruptcy?
For tax year 2015 and forward, notify the Michigan Department of Treasury.
Michigan Department of Treasury
City Tax Administration
P.O. Box 30741
Lansing, MI 48909
For tax years 2014 and prior, contact the City of Detroit at 313-224-3315 or visit the City of Detroit web page at http://www.detroitmi.gov/IncomeTax.
- 2. Can I set up an installment agreement on a bankruptcy account?
No. Treasury cannot set up an installment agreement if a taxpayer or account is in bankruptcy. Treasury can accept voluntary payments from the taxpayer. These payments will not be returned to the taxpayer, even if the debt is ultimately discharged.
- 3. Why did Treasury keep my City Income Tax refund when I'm in bankruptcy?
Treasury's ability to withhold a taxpayer's City income tax refund is determined by the chapter under which the bankruptcy was filed.
