Treasury: Individual Income Tax Returns due in Less Than a Month

 Tax Returns Must be eFiled or Mailed by April 15, 2024

LANSING, Mich. – The Michigan Department of Treasury (Treasury) is reminding taxpayers that state individual income tax returns are due in less than a month.

State individual income tax returns must be filed electronically or postmarked through the U.S. Postal Service by 11:59 p.m. on Monday, April 15. For more information about e-filing, go to

“Taxpayers still have time to complete and file their 2023 tax return before the mid-April deadline,” said Deputy State Treasurer Kavita Kale, who oversees Treasury’s Revenue Services programs. “This year, there are a lot of tax benefits on the table for Michigan’s taxpayers, including an expanded Michigan Earned Income Tax Credit for Working Families and the ‘Retirement Tax’ rollback. Consider e-filing or finding a reputable tax preparer to ensure an accurate return is filed and all benefits are received.”

For the 2023 tax year, the Michigan Earned Income Tax Credit for Working Families quintupled from 6% to 30% and retirees have more options for choosing the best taxing situation for their retirement benefits.

To date, more than 2.1 million returns for the 2023 tax year have been processed, providing more than $1.46 billion in refunds. The average refund amount is $841.

Printed tax forms are available online and at public libraries, post offices in northern Michigan and the Upper Peninsula, Department of Health and Human Services county offices, and Treasury field offices.

For the benefit and convenience of taxpayers, both federal and state of Michigan individual income tax returns are due April 15, 2024. City of Detroit individual income tax returns are also due on April 15, 2024.
