Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer has signed an executive order extending the state tax filing and payment deadline amid the coronavirus pandemic from April 15, 2020 to July 15, 2020. This decision comes after the Internal Revenue Service pushed back the federal tax filing deadline to July 15, 2020.
Returns and payments otherwise due on April 15, 2020, are now due on July 15, 2020. Returns and payments otherwise due on April 30, 2020, are now due on July 31, 2020. This applies to:
Annual state and city income tax returns and payments
Estimated state and city income tax payments
Estimated city income tax extension payments
The extensions are automatic. Taxpayers do not need to file any additional forms or call the Michigan Department of Treasury to qualify for relief.
Penalties and interest for failure to file or pay will not begin to accrue until after the extended deadlines.
