Notice: Flow-through Entity Tax Payments Delayed Due to MTO Registration Will Be Treated as Timely for Taxpayers Registered as of March 15, 2022

Date: March 14, 2022

Michigan Treasury Online (MTO) is currently experiencing an unexpected technical issue that is causing a delay of payments from taxpayers registering for the Michigan flow-through entity tax. After completing registration, affected taxpayers are receiving the following instruction within MTO:

Registration successful.  Your Flow-Through Entity (FTE) registration is being reviewed. Your FTE account should be available for use in 2-3 business days. If you continue to experience issues with our business registration, please contact us.

The Michigan Department of Treasury is working quickly to restore immediate payment functionality within MTO.  However, because this technical issue may prevent some taxpayers from submitting a flow-through entity tax payment on or before March 15, 2022, special relief is necessary.  Accordingly, for taxpayers who have registered within MTO as of March 15, 2022, but receive the message above, the Michigan Department of Treasury will regard any payment made through March 18, 2022, as having been paid as of the date of registration. Taxpayers who complete registration within MTO after March 15, 2022, will not be eligible for this relief.
