C08. Will Single Business Tax (SBT) credit carry forwards carry over to the Michigan Business Tax (MBT)?
Yes, with the exception of the Historical Preservation Credit and the Brownfield Credit, any unused SBT credit carry forward can be applied to MBT tax years 2008 and 2009. Any unused SBT carry forward remaining after 2009 is lost. MCL 208.1401. This carry forward provision applies to any unused SBT credit even if the SBT credit was not retained under the MBT and is subject to credit ordering.
The Historic Preservation Credit and Brownfield Credit carry forwards from the SBT may be claimed against the MBT for the remaining years the carry forward would have been available under the SBTA. MCL 208.1435(8) and 208.1437(18).
