Can I File Michigan Sales Use and Withholding Tax Online?

Posted by Lori Shepard on Fri, Nov 28, 2014 @ 08:00 AM

Work Outside!The MTO (Michigan Treasury Online) is a new service available for filing and paying the SUW taxes.

The State of Michigan recently sent out a letter titled: “New Online Registration and Sales Use and Withholding Tax Services”.

Filing and paying the SUW on-line through the MTO is not required.  However, taxpayers will have to sign up online in order to print out their booklet and their license – the booklet will no longer be mailed to the taxpayers.  The booklet also informs the taxpayer how often they are required to file and pay their taxes, monthly/quarterly/annually.  Please follow the guidelines below:

                If your annual tax due is less than $750 you would file annually.
                If your annual tax due is between $750 and $3,600 you would file quarterly.
                If your annual tax due is over $3,600 you would file monthly.
If taxpayers want to file and pay their SUW through the MTO for 2015, they should get registered and set up by 12/1/14. 

If you have any questions about this topic or need assistance, please request a complimentary accounting consultation or contact us at (616) 642-9467.
