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.
Can I e-file my Michigan individual income tax return (and/or City of Detroit) return separately from my federal return?
Yes. State Standalone e-file lets you submit your Michigan individual income tax return separately from your federal return. You can even e-file your homestead property tax credit claim, home heating credit claim and/or City of Detroit return separately. If you e-file your Michigan tax return alone, be sure to calculate your federal return before completing and e-filing your Michigan return.
You may want to choose State and/or City of Detroit Standalone e-file if you:
- Already paper filed your federal return.
- Are not required to file a federal return.
- Only need to file a Michigan homestead property tax credit claim and/or home heating credit claim.
- Have different City of Detroit residency status than your spouse and must file separate returns.
If you have already filed your federal return, and now want to e-file your Michigan return, do not e-file another copy of the federal return. Doing so will result in a rejection from the Internal Revenue Service, and Michigan will not receive your State return information. You must use State Standalone to e-file your State return.
