This teleconference will analyze the legal and regulatory guidance to date on Michigan's new corporate income tax, providing tax executives and advisors with a much-needed current awareness briefing to anticipate issues for their companies.


In recent months, Michigan officials have kept a brisk pace turning out new laws implementing the 6% corporate income tax launched this year, as well as interpretive guidance. In addition to a host of meaningful technical corrections bills for the new tax, lawmakers adopted an "actively solicits" nexus standard.

The state Treasury Department is expected to release important interpretive guidance soon, and has already published guidance on the new approach to withholding on pension and retirement distributions. Form 4913 quarterly corporate income tax returns and instructions are already available.

C corporations subject to the new Michigan corporate income tax (those with physical presence or soliciting sales in the state, and with $350,000 or more of gross receipts sourced there) must keep up with the latest state law and revenue agency developments as they plan for their first filings.

Listen as our panel of experienced state tax advisors briefs you on the latest, and coming, important actions in Michigan's transition to the corporate income tax.
