Tax Day is coming. Both state and federal income tax returns are due less than two weeks from today on April 15.
The Michigan Department of Treasury is reminding taxpayers that all state forms and instructions they need to finalize their 2014 tax returns are available on Treasury’s website at michigan.gov/incometax.
Officials say E-filing income tax returns has become a preferred method of filing for millions of taxpayers, with more than 80-percent of all Michigan income tax returns having been e-filed last year.
Taxpayers can access information about free and low-cost e-file online, by visiting MIfastfile.org. Free e-filing is available based on adjusted gross income, age, or active military status.
Treasury officials also say E-filing is the easiest, most efficient way to file your return and receive your refund.
Taxpayers can check the status of their refund on-line, by clicking the “Check My Income Tax Info” box on michigan.gov/incometax.
If you file a paper income tax return, Treasury recommends allowing the department 14 days to receive and enter it into the system before checking on its status.
