State income tax returns due in less than a month

LANSING — Michigan taxpayers are reminded state individual income tax returns are due in less than a month, according to the Michigan Department of Treasury (Treasury).

By 11:59 p.m. on April 18, state income tax returns must be submitted by e-filing or postmarked through the U.S. mail. Individuals are encouraged to e-file for greater return accuracy, enabling Treasury to process refunds faster.

“Please do not wait to file your individual income tax return,” said Deputy Treasurer Glenn White, head of Treasury’s Tax Administration Group. “Taxpayers who rush to file their returns are at a higher risk for making errors and delaying refunds.”

Last year, Treasury processed more than 5 million individual income tax returns, with 3.7 million receiving more than $1.8 billion in refunds. Approximately 4 million of those income tax returns were e-filed.

After filing a Michigan return, taxpayers can check the status of their refund online by going to www.michigan.gov/ wheresmyrefund.
