Additional Michigan Tax Extensions Were Recently Announced – Does Not Automatically Include Michigan Cities 

The Michigan Department of Treasury expanded upon its previously announced tax filing and payment extensions to mirror the US Department of Treasury.


In general, all individual, trust, and composite Michigan state tax returns and tax payments due on or after April 15, 2020 are automatically extended until July 15, 2020 and corporate returns and tax payments due on or after April 30, 2020 are automatically extended until July 31, 2020 without penalties or interest.  This includes balances due with or extension payments for the 2019 tax returns and first and second quarter 2020 estimated payments.


This extension does not apply to Michigan city income taxes. Balances due with or extension payments for the 2019 tax returns and first quarter 2020 estimated payments remain extended until July 31, 2020 under the previously released Executive Order 2020-26; however, second quarter 2020 estimates remain due on their original due date of June 30, 2020, unless changed by their respective city income tax administrator.
