A nonresident financial institution located outside Michigan whose only activity in Michigan consists of an ownership interest in loans secured in whole or in part by mortgages on real property located in Michigan will not have physical presence nexus under the CIT. However, nexus is determined by evaluating all facts and circumstances. To the extent that the nonresident financial institution, or its employee, agent, or independent contractor acting in a representative capacity, has physical presence in Michigan for more than one day, nexus is established. Additionally, nexus exists if the nonresident financial institution actively solicits sales in Michigan and has Michigan gross receipts of $350,000 or more, or if the taxpayer has an ownership interest or a beneficial interest in a flow-through entity, directly, or indirectly through 1 or more other flow-through entities, that has substantial nexus in this state.
