E19. Will there be a monetary penalty for failure to comply with the MBT e-file mandate?

No. However, if a preparer or taxpayer submits a computer-generated paper MBT return that is eligible for e-file, Treasury will not process the return and a notification will be mailed to the taxpayer. Payment received with a paper return will be processed and credited to the taxpayer's account even when the return is not processed.
