6. Who may participate in a composite return?
A participant in a Michigan Composite Individual Income Tax Return (Form 807) must be a nonresident member of a flow-through entity (FTE). A nonresident member is an individual who is not domiciled in this state; a nonresident estate or trust; or intermediate FTE** with a nonresident ultimate owner. An ultimate owner that participates in a composite return may not have a federal excess business loss limitation.
For each participating intermediate FTE include a Tiered Structure Schedule from the source FTE to the ultimate owner, with the following:
- Details for each tier of the tiered structure:
- FTE name, FEIN and ownership percentage for each tier
- Details for each participating ultimate owner:
- Name, address, account number, distributive share of Michigan income, tax and ownership percentage
** Limitations may apply on an intermediate FTE’s ability to participate in another FTE’s composite return if the intermediate FTE elected to pay Michigan flow-through entity tax. See Flow-Through Entity (FTE) Tax Credit FAQs.
