If any persons listed here are part of a federal consolidated group, attach a copy of federal Form 851. REASON CODES FOR EXCLUSION: 1. Lacks business activities resulting in a flow of value or integration, dependence or contribution to group. 2. Foreign operating entity. 6. Other. 7. Insurance company. (Insurance companies generally file separately.) 8. Financial institution. (Financial institutions and standard taxpayers generally are not included on the same combined return.) 4.

Persons that satisfy the criteria of Part 3 and Part 4 should be listed in each part. See column C instructions. 75. + A B Name FEIN or TR Number 0000 2019 59 06 27 8 C Reason This Person is Not on Current Return (See instructions for reason codes) Instructions for Form 4580 Michigan Business Tax (MBT) Unitary Business Group Combined Filing Schedule for Standard Members Purpose The purpose of this form is to: • Identify all members of a Unitary Business Group (UBG) • Gather tax return data for each standard member included in the combined return on a separate basis, make appropriate eliminations, and determine combined UBG data for the tax return. NOTE: This is not the primary return. It is designed to support the MBT Annual Return (Form 4567) submitted on behalf of the UBG by the Designated Member (DM). Refund Only: If combined apportioned or allocated gross receipts of all members (before eliminations) is less than $350,000 and there is no recapture, and the taxpayer is filing Form 4567 solely to claim a refund of estimates paid, Form 4580 must also be included. The designated member must complete Part 1A, Part 2B (skip lines 18 through 65), Part 3, and Part 4 of Form 4580. For each member listed in Part 1A, complete Part 1B and 2A (skip lines 18 through 65). See Form 4567 for instructions on completing that form. Tax Years Less Than 12 Months If the reported tax year is less than 12 months, gross receipts, must be annualized. If annualized gross receipts do not exceed $350,000, enter zero on this line. Annualizing Multiply each applicable amount, total gross receipts, adjusted business income, and shareholder, officer, and partner income by 12 and divide the result by the number of months the business operated. Generally, a business is considered in business for one month if the business operated for more than half the days of the month. If the tax year is less than one month, consider the tax year to be one month for the purposes of the calculation. General Information About UBGs in MBT Unitary Business Group means a group of United States persons, other than a foreign operating entity, that satisfies the control test and relationship test. United States person is defined in Internal Revenue Code (IRC) § 7701(a)(30). A foreign operating entity is defined by statute in Michigan Compiled Laws (MCL) 208.1109(5). Control Test. The control test is satisfied when one person owns or controls, directly or indirectly, more than 50 percent of the ownership interest with voting or comparable rights of the other person or persons. A person owns or controls more than 50 percent of the ownership interest with voting rights or ownership interest that confer comparable rights to voting rights of another person if that person owns or controls: • More than 50 percent of the total combined voting power of all ownership interests with voting (or comparable) rights, or • More than 50 percent of the total value of all ownership interests with voting (or comparable) rights. Relationship Tests. The definition of a Unitary Business Group requires that the group of persons have business activities or operations that either: 1) Result in a flow of value between or among persons in the group, or 2) Are integrated with, dependent upon, or contribute to each other. A taxpayer need only meet one of the two alternative tests to satisfy the relationship test. 1) Flow of value is established when members of the group demonstrate one or more of functional integration, centralized management, and economies of scale. Examples of functional integration include common programs or systems and shared information or property. Examples of centralized management include common management or directors, shared staff functions, and business decisions made for the UBG rather than separately by each member. Examples of economies of scale include centralized business functions and pooled benefits or insurance. Groups that commonly exhibit a flow of value include vertically or horizontally integrated businesses, conglomerates, parent companies with their wholly owned subsidiaries, and entities in the same general line of business. Flow of value must be more than the mere flow of funds arising out of passive investment. 2) The alternate contribution/dependency relationship test asks whether business activities are integrated with, dependent upon, or contributed to each other. Businesses are integrated with, are dependent upon, or contribute to each other under many of the same circumstances that establish flow of value. However, this alternate relationship test is also commonly satisfied when one entity finances the operations of another or when there exist intercompany transactions, including financing. For more information on the control and relationship tests for UBGs, see Revenue Administrative Bulletin (RAB) 2010-1, MBT—Unitary Business Group Control Test, and RAB 2010-2, MBT—Unitary Business Group Relationship Tests, on the Department of Treasury (Treasury) Web site at www.michigan.gov/treasury/, under “Reports and Legal Resources.” Filing Procedures for UBGs By definition, a UBG can include standard taxpayers, insurance companies, and financial institutions. (Note that an entity that would otherwise be standard but is owned by and 109 unitary with a financial institution is defined by statute to be a financial institution.) In some cases, however, not all members of the UBG will be included on the same return. Standard members (not owned by and unitary with a financial institution in the UBG) file a combined return on Form 4567. Form 4580 must be filed in support of that return. Form 4580 is used to gather and combine data from each standard member of the UBG to support the group’s Form 4567 and related forms. This form must be completed before the group’s Form 4567 and related forms are completed. If this UBG also includes financial institutions and/or insurance companies, those members generally will not report tax data on this form, but will be listed as excluded affiliates in Part 3. Financial institution members will report and combine their data using MBT Unitary Business Group Combined Filing Schedule for Financial Institutions (Form 4752), which supports the lead financial form, MBT Annual Return for Financial Institutions (Form 4590). Financial institutions include any of the following: • A bank holding company, a national bank, a state chartered bank, an office of thrift supervision chartered bank or thrift institution, or a savings and loan holding company other than a diversified savings and loan holding company as defined in 12 United States Code (USC) 1467a(a)(1)(F) or a federally chartered Farm Credit System institution. • Any person, other than a person subject to the tax imposed under Chapter 2A of the MBT Act (Insurance Companies), that is directly or indirectly owned by an entity described above and is a member of the UBG. • A UBG of entities described in either or both of the preceding two bullets. Each insurance company member will file separately, using the Insurance Company Annual Return for Michigan Business and Retaliatory Taxes (Form 4588). Because insurance companies always file separately, rather than on a combined return, there is no MBT insurance form that serves a function similar to that of Form 4580 and Form 4752. Example A: UBG A is composed of the following: • Four standard members • Three financial institutions (all with nexus in Michigan) • Two insurance companies. All members of UBG A are owned by and unitary with one of the standard members of the UBG. UBG A will need to file Form 4567, supported by Form 4580, containing the four standard members and Form 4590, supported by Form 4752, containing the three financial institutions. In Part 1 of Form 4580 or Form 4752, only the members that are included on that form (either the four standard members, or the three financial institutions) will be listed. Form 4580 with standard members will be prepared under the name and Federal Employer Identification Number (FEIN) or Michigan Treasury (TR) assigned number of the group’s standard DM. One of the financial institutions will serve as DM for those three members and file Form 4590, supported by Form 4752. On Part 3 of Form 4580, list all financial and insurance members. On Part 3 of Form 4752, list all standard and insurance members. The two insurance companies each will file a stand-alone Form 4588. Example B: UBG B is composed of the following: • Four members that would be standard (see below) unless owned by a financial institution • Three financial institutions (all with nexus in Michigan) • Two insurance companies. All members of UBG B are owned by and unitary with one of the financial institutions in the UBG. Due to this ownership by a financial institution, the four members that otherwise would be standard are defined by statute to be financial institutions. (See definition of financial institution earlier in these instructions.) Therefore, this UBG will not file a Form 4580 or Form 4567. Seven members will file a combined return on Form 4590, supported by Form 4752, listing the two insurance members as excluded affiliates on Part 3 of Form 4752. The two insurance companies each will file a stand-alone Form 4588. To complete this form and prepare a combined return, the UBG must select a DM. In Michigan, a UBG with standard members must file Form 4567. A Designated Member (DM) must file the return on behalf of the standard members of the group. In a parentsubsidiary controlled group, the controlling member must serve as DM if it has nexus with Michigan. If it does not have nexus, the controlling member may appoint any member with nexus to serve as DM. The tax year of the DM determines the filing period for the UBG. The combined return must include each tax year of each member that ends with or within the tax year of the DM. If a UBG is comprised of both standard taxpayers and financial institutions, the UBG will have two DMs (one for the standard taxpayer members completing Form 4567 and related forms, 110 and one for the financial institution members completing Form 4590 and related forms). Role of the DM: The DM speaks, acts, and files the MBT return on behalf of the group for MBT purposes. Only the DM may file a valid extension request for the group. Treasury maintains the group’s MBT tax data (e.g., prior MBT returns, business loss carryforward, tax credit carryforward, overpayment credit forward) under the DM’s name and account number. The DM must be of the same taxpayer type (standard or financial institution) as the members for which it files a combined return. Line-by-Line Instructions Lines not listed are explained on the form. Dates must be entered in MM-DD-YYYY format. Do not enter data in boxes filled with Xs. For additional guidance, see the “Supplemental Instructions for Standard Members in UBGs” section in Form 4600. Part 1A: Unitary Business Group Members Lines 1A and 1B: Beginning with the DM, list the UBG standard members and their corresponding FEIN or TR number. Use additional Part 1A, Form 4580 pages as needed. NOTE: A taxpayer that is a UBG must file a combined return using the tax year of the DM. The combined return of the UBG must include each tax year of each member whose tax year ends with or within the tax year of the DM. For example, Taxpayer ABC is a UBG comprised of three standard members: Member A, the DM with a calendar tax year, and Members B and C with fiscal years ending March 31 and September 30, respectively. Taxpayer ABC’s tax year is that of its DM. For this group in 2013, that annual return will include Member A’s calendar year ending December 31, 2013, the tax year of Member B ending March 31, 2013, and the tax year of Member C ending September 30, 2013. Part 1B: Member Identification Include a separate copy of Parts 1B and 2A for each standard member whose business activity is reported on the combined return supported by this form. If a member (other than the DM) has two or more tax periods ending with or within the filing period of the return, use a separate copy of Parts 1B and 2A for each of that member’s tax periods. Line 5: Identify the organization type of this member: • Individual. • C Corporation (including an LLC, Trust, or other entity taxed federally as a Corporation under Subchapter C of the IRC). • Fiduciary (a decedent’s estate, and a Trust taxed federally as a Trust under Subchapter J of the IRC. A grantor Trust or “revocable living Trust” established by an Individual is not taxed as a separate entity, and should be listed as an Individual). • S Corporation (including an LLC, Trust, or other entity taxed federally as a Corporation under Subchapter S of the IRC). • Partnership (including an LP, LLP, LLC, Trust, or any other entity taxed federally as a Partnership). NOTE: A person that is a disregarded entity for federal income tax purposes under the internal revenue code shall be classified as a disregarded entity for the purposes of filing the MBT annual return. This means that a disregarded entity for federal tax purposes, including a single member LLC or Q-Sub, must file as if it were a sole proprietorship if owned by an individual, or a branch or division if owned by another business entity. Line 6: List the member’s tax year, for federal income tax purposes, from which business activity is being reported on this copy of Parts 1B and 2A. Line 7: If the control test and relationship test were not both satisfied for this member’s entire federal tax year, enter the beginning and ending dates of the period within this member’s federal tax year during which both tests were satisfied. These dates constitute a short tax period for MBT purposes, even if there is no corresponding short federal tax period. This member must prepare a pro forma federal return for the portion of its federal year during which it was a UBG member, and use that pro forma return as the basis for reporting the tax data required by Part 2A. Line 8: Enter the member’s six-digit North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code. For a complete list of six-digit NAICS codes, see the U.S. Census Bureau Web site at www.census.gov/eos/www/naics/. Enter the same NAICS code used when filing U.S. Form 1120S, U.S. Form 1065, Schedule C of U.S. Form 1040, or Schedule K of U.S. Form 1120. Line 9: Enter the date, if applicable, on which this member went out of existence. Examples include death of an Individual, dissolution of an entity, and a merger in which this member was not the surviving entity. Include any event in which the FEIN ceases to be used by this entity. If this member continues to exist, DO NOT use this line to report that this member has stopped doing business in Michigan. Line 10: If this member has nexus with Michigan, check this box. Guidance in determining nexus can be found in RAB 2007-6 and 2008-4, available online at www.michigan.gov/taxes. (See the “Reference Library” link at left edge of page.) Line 12: This line does not apply to the first MBT return filed by this UBG. For subsequent tax periods, check this box if this member was not included in the UBG’s preceding MBT return. Line 13: Enter a concise description of the activities or operations of this member that result in a flow of value between this member and others in the UBG, or integration, dependence, or contribution to other members. This is not limited to transactions that are recognized for tax or accounting purposes. It may include sharing of assets, employees, data, business opportunities, or other resources. (See RAB 2010-2.) Part 2A: Member Data for Combined Return of Standard Taxpayers A member that does not file a separate federal return (e.g., a member that is a member of a federal consolidated group) must prepare a pro forma federal return or equivalent schedule and 111 use it as the basis for preparing its portion of the MBT return. Line 14: Sale or Sales means amounts received by a member as consideration from the following: • Transfer of title to, or possession of, property that is stock in trade or other property of a kind which would properly be included in the inventory of the member if on hand at the close of the tax period, or property held by the member primarily for sale to customers in the ordinary course of its trade or business. For intangible property, the amounts received will be limited to any gain received from the disposition of that property. • Performance of services which constitute business activities. • Rental, leasing, licensing, or use of tangible or intangible property, including interest, that constitutes business activity. • Any combination of business activities described above. • For a member not engaged in any other business activities, sales include interest, dividends, and other income from investment assets and activities and from trading assets and activities. If a member’s business activity is confined solely to Michigan and the member does not establish nexus in another state, all sales are allocated to Michigan. State is defined to include a foreign country. A member is treated as if subject to tax in another state if, in that state, the member is subject to a business privilege tax, a net income tax, a franchise tax measured by net income, a franchise tax for the privilege of doing business, a Corporation stock tax, or a tax of the type imposed under the MBT Act, or that state has jurisdiction to subject the member to one or more of such taxes regardless of whether the tax is imposed. A member will be treated as subject to a tax in another state for these purposes if the member has due process and commerce clause nexus with that state. If this member has no Michigan sales, enter zero. Complete this line using amounts for the member’s business activity only. Do not include amounts from an interest owned by the member in a Partnership or S Corporation (or LLC taxed federally as such). If this member is subject to tax in another state, as described above, use the “Sourcing of Sales to Michigan” information in the Form 4567 instructions to determine Michigan sales. If sales reported are adjusted by a deduction for qualified sales to a qualified customer, as determined by the Michigan Economic Growth Authority (MEGA), attach the Anchor District Tax Credit Certificate or Anchor Jobs Tax Credit Certificate from the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) as support. For transportation services that source sales based on revenue miles, include on Line 14 a sales amount calculated by multiplying total sales of the transportation service by the ratio of Michigan revenue miles over revenue miles everywhere as provided in the “Sourcing of Sales to Michigan” section of the Form 4600 General Instructions, for that type of transportation service. Revenue mile means the transportation for a consideration of one net ton in weight or one passenger the distance of one mile. 112 NOTE: Only transportation services are sourced using revenue miles. To the extent the UBG has business activities or revenue streams not from transportation services, those receipts should be sourced accordingly. Line 17: Gross receipts means the entire amount received by the member, as determined by using the member’s method of accounting for federal income tax purposes, from any activity, whether in intrastate, interstate, or foreign commerce, carried out for direct or indirect gain, benefit, or advantage to the member or to others, with certain exceptions. Receipts include, but are not limited to: • Some or all receipts (sales proceeds) from the sale of assets used in a business activity. • Sale of products. • Services performed. • Gratuities stipulated on a bill. • Dividend and interest income. • Gross commissions earned. • Rents. • Royalties. • Sales of scrap and other similar items. • Client reimbursed expenses not obtained in an agency capacity. • Gross proceeds from sales between affiliated companies, including members of a UBG. Use Worksheet 4700 in Form 4600 to calculate gross receipts. Attach the worksheet to the return. Gross receipts are not necessarily derived from the federal return, however, the worksheet will calculate gross receipts as defined by law in most circumstances. Taxpayers and tax professionals are expected to be familiar with uncommon situations within their experience, which produce gross receipts not identified by specific lines on Worksheet 4700, and report that amount on the most appropriate line. Treasury may adjust the figure resulting from the worksheet to account properly for such uncommon situations. A member should compute its gross receipts using the same accounting method used in the computation of its taxable income for federal income tax purposes. Producers of Agricultural Goods: The total gross receipts from all business activity must be reported on line 17, including the gross receipts from agricultural activity of a person whose primary activity is the production of agricultural goods. A subtraction is allowed on line 26 for the gross receipts that have been included on this line that are from the agricultural activity of a person whose primary activity is the production of agricultural goods. Producers of Oil or Gas, and Minerals: The total gross receipts from all business activity must be reported on line 17, including the gross receipts from the production of oil or gas, and minerals, even if this activity is subject to the Severance Tax on Oil or Gas, 1929 PA 48. A subtraction is allowed on line 26 for the gross receipts that have been included on this line that are from the production of oil and gas that are subject to the Severance Tax on Oil or Gas. Line 18: Enter inventory acquired during the tax year, including freight, shipping, delivery, or engineering charges included in the original contract price for that inventory. Inventory means the stock of goods, including electricity and natural gas, held for resale in the ordinary course of a retail or wholesale business, and finished goods, goods in process of a manufacturer, and raw materials purchased from another person. Inventory includes shipping and engineering charges so long as such charges are included in the original contract price for the associated inventory. Inventory also includes floor plan interest for new motor vehicle dealers licensed under the Michigan vehicle code and any pre-paid sales tax required to be paid on the inventory at the time of purchase. For purposes of this deduction, floor plan interest means interest paid that finances any part of the person’s purchase of new motor vehicle inventory from a manufacturer, distributor, or supplier. However, amounts attributable to any invoiced items used to provide more favorable floor plan assistance to a person subject to the tax imposed under the MBT Act than to a person not subject to this tax is considered interest paid by a manufacturer, distributor, or supplier, and is not considered floor plan interest. For a person that is a securities trader, broker, or dealer, or a person included in the UBG of that securities trader, broker, or dealer that buys and sells for its own account, inventory includes contracts that are subject to the Commodity Exchange Act, 7 USC 1 to 27f, the cost of securities as defined under IRC § 475(c)(2) and for a securities trader the cost of commodities as defined under IRC § 475(e)(2) and for a broker or dealer the cost of commodities as defined under IRC § 475(e)(2)(b), (c), and (d), excluding interest expense other than interest expense related to repurchase agreements. As used in this provision: • Broker and dealer mean those terms as defined under section 78c(a)(4) and (a)(5) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, 15 USC 78c. • Securities trader means a person that engages in the trade or business of purchasing and selling investments and trading assets. Inventory does not include either of the following: • Personal property under lease or principally intended for lease rather than sale. • Property allowed a deduction or allowance for depreciation or depletion under the IRC. Line 19: Enter assets, including the costs of fabrication and installation, acquired during the tax year of a type that are, or under the IRC will become, eligible for depreciation, amortization, or accelerated capital cost recovery for federal income tax purposes. Line 20: To the extent not included in inventory or depreciable property, enter materials and supplies, including repair parts and fuel. Materials and supplies means tangible personal property purchased in the tax year that are ordinary and necessary expenses to be used in carrying on a trade or business. Materials and supplies includes repair parts and fuel. Fuel means materials used and consumed to produce heat or power by burning. Fuel does not include electricity. Line 21: A staffing company may deduct compensation (including wages, benefits, and all payroll taxes) paid to personnel supplied to its clients. Staffing company means a taxpayer whose business activities are included in Industry Group 736 under the Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) Code as compiled by the United States Department of Labor. Payments to a staffing company by a client do not constitute purchases from other firms. Line 22: For taxpayers that fall under SIC major groups 15 (Building Construction General Contractors and Operative Builders), 16 (Heavy Construction Other Than Building Construction Contractors), and 17 (Construction Special Trade Contractors) who do not claim the Small Business Alternative Credit (SBAC) under MCL 208.1417 for the tax year, the following payments are considered “purchases from other firms:” • Payments to subcontractors for a construction project, under a contract specific to that project, and • To the extent not deducted as “inventory” and “materials and supplies,” payments for materials deducted as purchases in determining the cost of goods sold for the purpose of calculating total income on the taxpayer’s federal income tax return. NOTE: This subtraction is only available to a member of the UBG if the group does not claim the SBAC for the tax year. However, for purposes of the SIC code requirement, it is sufficient that the UBG member that made the payments listed above be included in SIC codes 15, 16, or 17. Persons included in SIC codes 15, 16, and 17 include general contractors (of residential buildings including single-family homes; industrial, commercial, and institutional buildings; bridges, roads, and infrastructure; etc.), operative builders, and trade contractors (such as electricians, plumbers, painters, masons, etc.). See http://www.osha.gov/pls/imis/sic_manual.html for a more complete list. A subcontractor is an Individual or entity that enters into a contract and assumes some or all of the obligations of a person included in SIC codes 15, 16, and 17 as set forth in the primary contract specific to a project. Thus, payments to an independent contractor for general labor services not specific to a particular construction contract do not constitute purchases from other firms. However, payments made to a subcontractor for services and materials provided under a contract specific to a particular construction project (such as the construction of commercial property at 2400 Main Street) do constitute purchases from other firms. There is no requirement that the subcontractors to whom such payments are made be licensed. The taxpayer bears the burden to prove it is entitled to a deduction in computing its tax liability. It is contemplated that good business practice would include documentation such as a written contract that would support a deduction from gross receipts for payments to subcontractors as purchases from other firms. The supporting information for payments to a subcontractor could be incorporated into the contract for the specific project or memorialized in a separate contract with a subcontractor specifying the project to which the costs pertain. 113 Line 24: On lines 24a through 24g, calculate a deduction from gross receipts for a member that is a limited dividend housing association that owns and operates a Qualified Affordable Housing Project (QAHP). Public Act (PA) 168 of 2008 provides for a deduction from the modified gross receipts and apportioned business income tax bases for a QAHP. (A deduction from the apportioned business income tax base also is available. See below.) Qualified Affordable Housing Project means a person that is organized, qualified, and operated as a limited dividend housing association that has a limitation on the amount of dividends or other distributions that may be distributed to its owners in any given year and has received funding, subsidies, grants, operating support, or construction or permanent funding through one or more public sources. A limited dividend housing association is organized and qualified pursuant to Chapter 7 of the State Housing Development Authority Act (MCL 125.1491 et seq). If these criteria are satisfied, a QAHP may deduct from its modified gross receipts, its gross receipts attributable to the residential rental units in Michigan it owns multiplied by a fraction, the numerator of which is the number of rent restricted units in Michigan owned by that QAHP and the denominator of which is the number of all residential rental units in Michigan owned by the project. This deduction is reduced by the amount of limited dividends or other distributions made to the owners of the project. Amounts received by the management, construction, or development company for completion and operation of the project and rental units do not constitute gross receipts for purposes of the deduction. MCL 208.1201(8) governs the termination of this deduction. Line 24a: Gross receipts attributable to residential rentals in Michigan do not include amounts received by the management, construction, or development company for completion and operation of the project and those rental units. Line 24b: Rent restricted unit means any residential rental unit that has a rental rate restricted in accordance with IRC § 42(g)(1) as if it was a qualified low-income housing project, or that receives rental assistance from Housing and Urban Development (HUD) section 8 subsidies, HUD housing assistance program subsidies, U.S. Department of Agriculture rural housing programs, or from any of the programs described in MCL 208.1203(8)(b). Line 24c: This includes rent restricted and unrestricted residential rental units owned by the QAHP in Michigan. Line 25: If the member is licensed under Article 25 (Real Estate Brokers and Salespersons) or Article 26 (Real Estate Appraisers) of the Occupational Code [MCL 339.2501 to 339.2518 and 339.2601 to 339.2637], enter payments made to independent contractors licensed under Articles 25 or 26. Line 26: There are three items that qualify for entry on this line. If more than one type applies, enter the combined total as a single amount. 114 A) For a person classified under the 2002 North American Industrial Classification System (NAICS) Number 484, as compiled by the United States Office of Management and Budget, that does not qualify for a credit under Section 417, enter the payment, made on or after July 12, 2011, to subcontractors to transport freight by motor vehicle under a contract specific to that freight to be transported by motor vehicle. Attach a letter to explain the activity that qualifies for this subtraction and the date of the payment. Include the NAICS code. B) Enter on this line the gross receipts included on line 17, which result from the agricultural activity of a person whose primary activity (i.e., more than 50 percent of gross receipts) is the production of agricultural goods. C) Enter on this line the gross receipts included on line 17 which result from the production of oil or gas, and minerals if that production of oil or gas, and minerals is subject to the Severance Tax on Oil or Gas, 1929 PA 48. Line 28: Enter amount of the MBT Modified Gross Receipts (MGR) Tax collected in the tax year. MCL 208.1203(5) permits new motor vehicle dealers licensed under the Michigan Vehicle Code, PA 300 of 1949, MCL 257.1 to 257.923, and dealers of new or used personal watercraft to collect the MGR Tax in addition to the sales price. The statute states that the “amount remitted to the Department for the [Modified Gross Receipts Tax] ... shall not be less than the stated and collected amount.” Therefore, the entire amount of the MGR Taxes stated and collected by new motor vehicle dealers and new or used personal watercraft dealers must be remitted to Treasury. There should be no instance in which a dealer collects amounts of the MGR Tax from customers in excess of the amount of MGR taxes remitted to Treasury. Eligible taxpayers that elect to separately collect the MGR Tax from customers in addition to sales price may include the collected tax as part of their estimated payments. NOTE: Only new motor vehicle dealers and dealers of new or used personal watercraft are permitted to separately itemize and collect a tax imposed under the MBT Act from customers in addition to sales price, and that authority is limited to only the MGR Tax imposed and levied under MCL 208.1203. The statute does not authorize separate itemizing and collection of the Business Income Tax by any person. Line 29: A member that is a dealer of personal watercraft or new motor vehicles that collected MGR Tax from customers by separate statement on the invoice during the tax year, as entered in line 28, should complete the following worksheet to determine excess MGR Tax collected. WORKSHEET – EXCESS MGR TAX COLLECTED A. Pro forma apportionment percentage from Form 4580, Part 2A, line 16a..... B. Modified gross receipts from Form 4580, Part 2A, line 27. If MGR is less than zero, enter zero................. C. Apportioned MGR tax base. Multiply line B by line A.................... % 00 00 D. Pro forma MGR Tax before credits. Multiply line C by 0.8% (0.008) ......... E. Enrichment prohibition, amount from Form 4580, Part 2A, line 28 ............... F. Excess MGR Tax collected. If line D is less than line E, enter the difference. Otherwise, enter zero. Carry amount to Form 4580, Part 2A, line 29 ................................................. 00 00 00 Line 30: Business income means that part of federal taxable income derived from business activity. For MBT purposes, federal taxable income means taxable income as defined in IRC § 63, except that federal taxable income shall be calculated as if section 168(k) [as applied to qualified property placed in service after December 31, 2007] and IRC § 199 were not in effect. For a Partnership or S Corporation (or LLC federally taxed as such), business income includes payments and items of income and expense that are attributable to business activity of the Partnership or S Corporation and separately reported to the partners or shareholders. Use the Business Income Worksheet (Worksheet 4746) in Form 4600 to calculate business income. Attach Worksheet 4746 to the return. The worksheet will calculate business income as defined by law in most circumstances. Taxpayers and tax professionals are expected to be familiar with uncommon situations within their experience, which produce business income not identified by specific lines on the worksheet, and report that amount on the most appropriate line. Treasury may adjust the figure resulting from Worksheet 4746 to account properly for such uncommon situations. For an organization that is a mutual or cooperative electric company exempt under IRC § 501(c)(12), business income equals the organization’s excess or deficiency of revenues over expenses as reported to the federal government by those organizations exempt from the federal income tax under the IRC, less capital credits paid to members of that organization, less income attributed to equity in another organization’s net income, and less income resulting from a charge approved by a state or federal regulatory agency that is restricted for a specified purpose and refundable if it is not used for the specified purpose. For a tax-exempt person, business income means only that part of federal taxable income (as defined for MBT purposes) derived from unrelated business activity. For an Individual or an estate, or for a Partnership or Trust organized exclusively for estate or gift planning purposes, business income is that part of federal taxable income (as defined for MBT purposes) derived from transactions, activities, and sources in the regular course of the member’s trade or business, including the following: • All income from tangible and intangible property if the acquisition, rental, management, or disposition of the property constitutes integral parts of the member’s regular trade or business operations. • Gains or losses incurred in the member’s trade or business from stock and securities of any foreign or domestic corporation, and dividend and interest income. • Income derived from isolated sales, leases, assignment, licenses, divisions, or other infrequently occurring dispositions, transfers, or transactions involving property if the property is or was used in the member’s trade or business operation. • Income derived from the sale of a business. NOTE: Personal investment income, gains from the sale of property held for personal use and enjoyment, or other assets not used in a trade or business, and any other income not specifically derived from a trade or business that is earned, received, or otherwise acquired by an Individual, an estate, or a Trust or Partnership organized or established exclusively for estate or gift planning purposes, are not included in the Business Income Tax base. This exclusion only applies to the specific types of persons identified above. Investment income and any other types of income earned or received by all other types of persons not specifically referenced must be included in the business income of the member. IMPORTANT: If business activity is protected under Public Law (PL) 86-272 for any member of the UBG, then the member must claim protection by filing the MBT Tax Schedule of Business Activity Protected Under Public Law 86-272 (Form 4586) (if member is the DM) or the MBT Schedule of Business Activity for Non-Designated Members of a Unitary Business Group Protected Under Public Law 86-272 (Form 4581) (if member is not the DM) and reporting its individual activity. Unless all members of the UBG have PL 86-272 protection, a member claiming protection must complete lines

About the Corporate Income Tax

The IRS and most states require corporations to file an income tax return, with the exact filing requirements depending on the type of company.

Sole proprietorships or disregarded entities like LLCs are filed on Schedule C (or the state equivalent) of the owner's personal income tax return, flow-through entities like S Corporations or Partnerships are generally required to file an informational return equivilent to the IRS Form 1120S or Form 1065, and full corporations must file the equivalent of federal Form 1120 (and, unlike flow-through corporations, are often subject to a corporate tax liability).

Additional forms are available for a wide variety of specific entities and transactions including fiduciaries, nonprofits, and companies involved in other specific types of business.
