State Treasury Outlines Late Return Options

Missed the state deadline to file your taxes? The Michigan Department of Treasury says you have options.

If you’re a Michigan taxpayer and you missed the July 15 deadline to file your state individual income taxes, the Michigan Department of Treasury said you have options for filing a late return.

“If you have an outstanding tax debt and cannot make full payment, we will work with you on payment options. Our goal is to help taxpayers limit interest charges and late payment penalties,” Treasurer Rachael Eubanks said.

According to the Michigan Department of Treasury, here are options that past-due tax filers can consider:

Taxpayers who received a final bill and can’t pay the entire amount have alternatives as well.

Here are the options directly from the Michigan Department of Treasury:

  • Requesting a penalty waiver. Penalties may be waived on an assessment if a taxpayer can show reasonable cause for their failure to pay on time. Reasonable cause includes serious illness, a fire or natural disaster, or criminal acts against you. Documentation should be submitted to substantiate the reason for a penalty waiver request.
  • Making monthly payments through an installment agreement. For installment agreements lasting for 24 months or less, taxpayers must complete, sign and return the installment agreement (Form 990). The agreement requires a proposed payment amount that will be reviewed for approval by Treasury.
  • Filing an Offer in Compromise application. An Offer in Compromise is a request by a taxpayer for the Michigan Department of Treasury to compromise an assessed tax liability for less than the full amount. For more information or an application, visit michigan.gov/oic.

The Michigan Department of Treasury said the last three options should be filed separately from the state income tax return.
