Income Tax Returns Due April 15th

Contact:  Terry Stanton, (517) 335-2167 join our list serv

The Michigan Department of Treasury is reminding Michigan Taxpayers that individual income tax returns for 2009 must be postmarked or e-filed by midnight Thursday, April 15, 2010.

Thousands of Michigan taxpayers will again be eligible to claim Michigan's Earned Income Tax Credit, or EITC. Individuals and joint-filers, who claim an Earned Income Tax Credit on their 2009 federal tax return, will be eligible to claim a Michigan EITC of 20 percent of their federal credit. More than 700-thousand Michigan taxpayers claimed a Michigan EITC last year.

The Michigan Department of Treasury provides a wide-range of income tax and credit information on its income tax Web site, at www.michigan.gov/incometax. The site details what's new for Tax Year 2009, offers help in locating tax forms, and information about e-filing your return. Last year, nearly two-thirds of all Michigan tax returns were filed electronically. E-file is convenient, fast, and secure. When taxpayers choose direct deposit, the receive refunds even faster. For more information, visit www.MIfastfile.org.

A self-service area is also available for taxpayers to check the status of their refunds, payments, or correspondence with the department. To access the Check My Income Tax Info section, users must enter their last name, Social Security Number, Adjusted Gross Income or Household Income, and filing status. Taxpayers who do not have Internet access can receive the same information by calling (800) 827-4000. The number is toll-free and callers must also provide their last name, Social Security Number, Adjusted Gross Income or Household Income, and filing status. Taxpayers should note that hold times may vary, depending on the volume of calls made to the department.
