Multistate Tax Alert: Michigan Law Change
Permits corporations to seek an exemption from flow-through entity withholding of corporate income tax and amends the due dates
As originally enacted, the Michigan Corporate Income Tax (“CIT”), effective January 1, 2012, generally required that a flow-through entity withhold tax (at the 6% CIT tax rate) relative to a corporate partner’s/member’s share of apportioned business income. On June 28, 2012, Senate Bill 1104 was enacted, amending Michigan’s CIT law to permit a corporation to seek an exemption from this withholding requirement. The new law also amends the due dates for quarterly withholding.
