E26. What if the federal return cannot be e-filed? Will an MBT State Stand Alone return be required?
If the federal return cannot be e-filed, Treasury will accept a paper MBT return for the 2010 tax year. A completed Form 4833, Michigan Business Tax E-file Exceptions, must be attached to the front of the return. Form 4833 will be generated by your software.
Beginning with the 2011 tax year, the MBT return must be e-filed as a State Stand Alone submission if the federal return cannot be e-filed.
