Treasury: State Individual Income Tax Returns Due in Less Than a Month

Check Refund Status, Ask Questions with Treasury eServices

LANSING, Mich. – The Michigan Department of Treasury is reminding taxpayers that state individual income tax returns are due in less than a month.

State individual income tax returns must be filed electronically or postmarked through the U.S. Postal Service by 11:59 p.m. on Monday, April 18.

“If you haven’t started thinking about filing your individual income tax return, now is the time to do so,” said Deputy State Treasurer Glenn White, who oversees Treasury’s Revenue Services programs. “There is still plenty of time left to file your tax return. Consider e-filing to ensure an accurate return and timely refund.”

Choosing electronic filing and direct deposit is convenient, safe and secure. Last year, more than 4.8 million Michigan taxpayers e-filed, which is 88% of state income tax filers.

Printed tax forms are available at public libraries, post offices in northern Michigan and the Upper Peninsula, Department of Health and Human Services county offices, and Treasury field offices.

For the convenience of taxpayers, both federal and state tax returns are due on Monday, April 18.

Check Refund Status, Ask Questions with eServices

Michigan taxpayers who have questions about their individual income tax returns or refunds can use the Treasury eServices platform to find answers.

The state Treasury Department portal enables taxpayers to ask state individual income tax-related questions when convenient and avoids waiting for a customer service representative to answer your call. Taxpayers typically get answers to questions through Treasury eServices within 24 to 48 hours.

Real-time tax refund status information is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The Treasury eServices platform also enables taxpayers to change addresses, view estimated tax payments, calculate penalty and interest, and view and respond to letters.
