Because Treasury has started issuing the expanded Michigan EITC supplemental check payments for tax year 2022, it is no longer necessary to view or manually update your address. If you moved between last year and now, please be sure your new address is on your 2023 individual income tax return filing.
Michigan E-file - Individual Income Tax Preparer
The IRS mandates preparers filing 11 or more returns to e-file those returns, with minor exceptions. Michigan would expect any preparer e-filing federal returns to also e-file the Michigan returns (including the City of Detroit returns).
Stolen-Identity Tax Fraud
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. For more information regarding identify theft visit www.michigan.gov/taxes/iit/identity/theft.
