Who must withhold Michigan Income Tax?

Every employer in the state who is required to withhold federal income tax under the Internal Revenue Code (IRC) must withhold Michigan income tax. Payers of pension and retirement benefits that will be subject to income tax must withhold on the taxable amount. Employers located outside Michigan who have employees working in Michigan must register with the Treasury and withhold Michigan income tax from all employees working in Michigan. Employers located in Michigan assigning a Michigan resident employee to work temporarily in another state must withhold Michigan income tax from compensation paid to the employee for work done in another state.


Michigan has a reciprocal agreement with Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Minnesota, Ohio, and Wisconsin. This means a Michigan employer will not withhold Michigan income tax from residents of these states who work in Michigan and these states will not withhold their state income tax from Michigan residents working in the applicable states.


Who must file?

Any employer required to withhold or should have withheld Michigan income tax is required to file their applicable Form 1099 and Form W-2 with the Michigan Department of Treasury. Those employers required to file MUST register with the state of Michigan by completing Form 518 and sending in a paper copy to the address as instructed on the form or online at Michigan Business One Stop at:

  • Due Date (Form 165): February 29th of the year following the year the forms are in reference to

  1. Quarterly:

DUE DATES

The employer must provide each employee with a copy of their completed W-2 form by January 31 of the following year in which the W-2 is in reference to.

The employer is required to file Copy A of all W-2 form along with a form W-3 with the SSA (Social Security Administration) by the last day of February of the year following the year in which the W-2/W-3 is in reference to if the forms are paper filed. If the forms are e-filed the due date is automatically extended to the last day in March of the year following the year in which the W-2/W-3 is in reference to (for the 2017 tax year the due date will be January 31, 2018 for e-Filing).


Where to file?

There are several ways to file. You can print paper copies and mail them to the SSA and the recipients. You can use michigantaxfilings.info to e-file the form to the SSA and email it to the recipients.





Form W-2C

Form W-2c is for correcting any errors entered in Form W-2. Filers may use michigantaxfilings.info to easily edit and fix any incorrect W-2s originally filed with michigantaxfilings.info. If the filer submitted Form W-2 through michigantaxfilings.info and the return was accepted by the IRS, they can make corrections of that form by going to ‘Submitted Forms’ on the dashboard, choose the correct form and click ‘Make Corrections’ under Options.

The filer will then select the Payer and the form that needs to be corrected. This will open a Form W-2 C, where they will be able to update the correct information. Correct errors (such as incorrect name, SSN, or amount) on a previously filed Form W-2 or Form W-2c.

If they are correcting only an employee's name and/or SSN, complete Form W-2c boxes d through i. Do not complete boxes 1 through 20. Have the employee correct the SSN and/or name on his or her original Form W-2. If the employee has been given a new social security card following an adjustment to his or her resident status that shows a different name or SSN, file a Form W-2c for the most current year only.

In order to correct an incorrect tax year and/or EIN on a previously submitted Form W-2, enter the tax year and EIN originally reported, and enter in the “Previously reported” boxes the money amounts that were on the original Form W-2. In the “Correct information” boxes, enter zeros. Prepare a second Form W-2C and enter zeros in the “Previously reported” boxes, and enter the correct money amounts in the “Correct information” boxes. Enter the correct tax year and/or correct EIN.

If the filer submitted a Form W-2 with the SSA that reported an incorrect address for the employee, but all other information on the Form W-2 was correct, the filer will not file Form W-2c with the SSA just to correct the address. But, if the address was incorrect on the Form W-2 they provided to the employee, the filer must do one of the following:

  • Issue a corrected Form W-2 to the employee with the new address. Indicate “REISSUED STATEMENT” on the new copies. Do not send Copy A of Form W-2 to the SSA.
  • Issue a Form W-2c to the employee that shows the correct address in box i, and all other correct information. Do not send Copy A of Form W-2c to the SSA. Reissue the Form W-2 that had the incorrect address to the employee in an envelope showing the correct address.


Form W-3

Form W-3 is a reconciliation form used to summarize all wages and withholdings, as well as any other applicable information. This form includes the total amount for all employees that worked for the employer during the tax year.

Anyone who paper filed Form W-2 must file Form W-3 to send with Copy A of Forms W-2 to the SSA. Even if there is only one paper W-2 form being filed a W-3 is still required. Do not file a W-3 for Form(s) W-2 that were submitted electronically to the SSA.

A transmitter or sender may sign Form W-3 (or use their PIN to e-file) for the employer or payer only if the sender is authorized to sign by an agency agreement (whether oral, written, or implied) that is valid under state law; and it reads “For (name of payer)” next to the signature. (This applies to paper filing of Form W-3 only).

To correct a W-3 the filer can use the current version of Form W-3c to correct errors. Corrections may be made from an error on a previously filed Form W-3 or Form W-3c. They must file Copy A of Form W-3c with the SSA.

Corrections reported on Form W-2c may require the filer to make corrections to their previously filed employment tax returns using the corresponding “X” form, such as Form 941-X, Adjusted Employer's QUARTERLY Federal Tax Return or Claim for Refund; Form 943-X, Adjusted Employer's Annual Federal Tax Return for Agricultural Employees or Claim for Refund; Form 944-X, Adjusted Employer's ANNUAL Federal Tax Return or Claim for Refund; or Form CT-1X, Adjusted Employer's Annual Railroad Retirement Tax Return or Claim for Refund.
