As part of the Internal Revenue Service’s and State of Michigan’s efforts to provide taxpayers relief during the coronavirus pandemic, there have been a significant number of IRS Notices and Executive Orders issued over the past few weeks. This relief has addressed extensions on the filing of certain tax returns and tax payments. As of last week, Michigan’s Governor issued an Executive Order following the federal filing extensions.
Miller Johnson is actively following these developments and has compiled the below relief chart to stay up-to-date on the latest federal and Michigan state tax relief measures. This table will continue to be updated in real-time as more information is available.
