The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) will open the IIT 2023 e-file season on January 29, 2024. Michigan will retrieve and acknowledge IIT e-file returns on the same day the IRS opens for e-file. E-filing and choosing Direct Deposit is the fastest way to receive your Michigan refund.

Michigan and City of Detroit tax returns for 2021, 2022 and 2023 tax returns will be accepted during the 2024 processing year. 

Michigan, along with many other state revenue agencies, is requesting additional information in an effort to combat stolen-identity tax fraud to protect you and your tax refund. If you have a driver’s license or state issued identification card, please provide the requested information from it. Your return will not be rejected if you do not have a driver’s license or state-issued identification. Providing the information could help process your return more quickly.

E-file with Commercial Tax Software
Do it yourself. Buy tax preparation software either over-the-counter or online and prepare your own return. The software’s question and answer format makes doing taxes much easier than filling out tax forms. Several software companies offer FREE e-file services to qualified Michigan taxpayers. If you do not qualify to file for FREE, you may also e-file for a small fee.


E-file Through a Paid Tax Preparer 
Find a tax professional you trust to prepare and e-file your return. Nearly all tax preparers use e-file, and many are required to do so. To find an e-file provider in your area, search the IRS Authorized e-file Provider Locator.
