Completing the eCheck Login
Can I make an eCheck payment if I did not file a Michigan individual income tax return last year (2019)?
No. You must have filed a return in the previous tax year (2019) to be eligible for the eCheck option.
Can I make an eCheck payment if I filed a joint return last year (2019), but am filing a single or married filing separately return this year?
No. If you were not the primary filer on last year's (2019) return, you are not eligible to make an eCheck payment.
If I am entering the zip code used on last year's (2019) return, why am I being told the information does not match?
If you are receiving a message indicating the information you have entered does not match our records, it is possible the zip code you have entered is not correct. If you have moved since filing your Michigan individual iincome tax return, try entering your current zip code as our records may have been updated.
