Are wages earned by a Michigan resident, telecommuting from a Michigan location for an employer physically located in another state, subject to tax in the other state?

For guidance on the tax treatment of other states contact that specific state. However, wages earned from telecommuting while physically located in Michigan create a withholding obligation for the employer.

Note: Michigan residents' wages, salary, or guaranteed payments are subject to Michigan tax, no matter where they are earned.
