Michigan Department of Treasury — 4599 (Rev. 01-21) Important Information for 2020 Michigan Business Tax (MBT) Election Only those taxpayers that have been approved to receive, have received, or have been assigned a certificated credit that has not yet fully been claimed or utilized may elect to be MBT taxpayers. If a taxpayer files an MBT return for its first tax year beginning after December 31, 2011, the taxpayer makes the election to file and pay under the MBT until the certificated credit and any carryforward of that credit are exhausted. Except for taxpayers with certain qualifying brownfield redevelopment or historical preservation certificated credits, the election must be made for the first tax year beginning after December 31, 2011. Once the election is made and the return is submitted, the taxpayer may not amend the return to revoke the election. Find a list of certificated credits in the General Information for Standard Taxpayers in the MBT Forms and Instructions for Standard Taxpayers (Form 4600). Helpful Hints for Completing an MBT Return MBT UBG Combined Filing Schedule for Financial Institutions (Form 4752) Members of a UBG will report their data on Form 4752. Once all member data is combined and eliminations are calculated, these final figures will carry to Form 4590. All credits claimed on Form 4752 must be supported by the applicable forms and these forms must be included when filing the return. certificate, or reassignment certificate is issued under section 435 to a taxpayer, beginning on and after January 1, 2012, the taxpayer may elect to claim an accelerated refund for 90 percent of the amount of that certificate. If section 437 or 435 provides that payment of a credit will be made over a period of years or limits the annual amount of a payment, an accelerated refund may only be claimed for the amount payable in the year claimed. However, a taxpayer claiming the Special Consideration Historic Preservation Credit under section 435(20) may elect to claim an accelerated refund for the balance of the credit, but the amount of that refund shall be equal to 86 percent of the amount of the credit. For more details, see the Request for Reduced Refundable Credit Payout for the Brownfield Redevelopment Credit and Historic Preservation Credit (Form 4889). Michigan Tax Forms are online at www.michigan.gov/taxes. An accelerated credit refund will be paid within 60 days after Form 4889 is filed. If a taxpayer files Form 4889 and claims an accelerated credit, the taxpayer makes the election to file and pay under the MBT until the certificated credit and any carryforward of that credit are exhausted. A taxpayer claiming an accelerated credit on Form 4889 must also file an annual MBT return. Brief Overview of the CIT UBG members may have different tax year-ends. The combined return must include each member whose tax year ends with or within the tax year of the Designated Member (DM). The CIT took effect January 1, 2012, and replaces the MBT, except for certain businesses that wish to claim certificated credits. Among the highlights of the CIT: Amended Returns To amend a current or prior year annual return, complete the Form 4590 that is applicable for that year, check the box in the upper-right corner of the return, and attach a separate sheet explaining the reason for the changes. Include an amended federal return or a signed and dated Internal Revenue Service (IRS) audit document. Include all schedules filed with the original return, even if not amending that schedule. Enter the figures on the amended return as they should be. Do not include a copy of the original return with your amended return. • The CIT applies to all financial institutions unless the financial institution is able to and does make the MBT election. • Taxpayers will be required to file quarterly estimated returns as well as an annual return. • Annual payments will still be due on the prescribed due date of the annual return. • The CIT is equal to 0.29% of net capital for financial institutions. • There are no credits available for financial institutions under the CIT. • An entity that has received, has been approved to receive, or has been assigned certain certificated tax credits under MBT may elect to continue to file and pay under the MBT in lieu of the CIT. This election must be made with the annual return filed for first tax period beginning after 2011 for most certificated credits. The election is also made if a taxpayer files a Form 4889, Claim for Accelerated Credit. • Estimated payments will still be due on the prescribed due dates for quarterly estimated returns. Accelerated Credits A taxpayer with a certificated credit under section 435 (Historic) or 437 (Brownfield) of the Michigan Business Tax Act (MBTA), or any unused carryforward of such certificated credit that may be claimed in a tax year ending after December 31, 2011, may elect to pay the tax imposed by the MBTA in the tax year in which that certificated credit may be claimed in lieu of the CIT. If a person with a certificated credit under section 435 or 437 that elects to pay the MBT is a member of a Unitary Business Group (UBG), the Designated Member of the UBG, and not the member, shall file a UBG return and pay the tax, if any, under the MBTA and claim that certificated credit. For a tax year beginning after December 31, 2011, if a certificate of completion, assignment certificate, or component completion certificate is issued under section 437 to a taxpayer, or if a certificate of completed rehabilitation, assignment 1 2020 General Information for Financial Institutions Standard Taxpayers and Insurance Companies: See the Michigan Business Tax (MBT) Instruction Booklet for Standard Taxpayers (Form 4600) or the MBT Instruction Booklet for Insurance Companies (Form 4592) at www.michigan.gov/taxes. This booklet is intended as a guide to help complete the MBT return. It does not take the place of the law. • MEGA Photovoltaic Technology Credit (Form 4574) • Film Production Credit (Form 4574). Who Files a Financial Return? Using This Booklet Only those taxpayers with a certificated credit, which is awarded but not yet fully claimed or utilized, may elect to be MBT taxpayers. If a taxpayer files an MBT return and claims a certificated credit, the taxpayer makes the election to file and pay under the MBT until the certificated credit and any carryforward of that credit are exhausted. Once the election is made and the return is submitted, the taxpayer may not amend the return to revoke the election. This MBT financial institution booklet includes forms and instructions for financial institutions. These forms are designed for calendar year filers, and fiscal filers with a tax year ending in 2014. Read the General Information first. It is recommended that taxpayers and tax preparers also briefly review the instructions for all forms. File an MBT Annual Return for Financial Institutions (Form 4590) if the taxpayer is any of the following and holds a certificated credit: The franchise tax is imposed upon the tax base of the financial institution after allocation or apportionment to Michigan at the rate of 0.235 percent. There is no filing threshold for financial taxpayers. • 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 an insurance company subject to the tax imposed under Chapter 2A of the MBT Act, who is directly or indirectly owned by an entity described above and is a member of the Unitary Business Group (UBG). (See the definition of UBG in the “UBGs and Combined Filing” section of this General Information.) This generally refers to all non-insurance taxpayers that are owned by and unitary with financial institutions. • A UBG consisting of entities described above. What is a Certificated Credit Certificated credits consist of MBT credits that, under MCL 208.1107, are allowed to be applied against the calculated CIT liability, as provided under MCL 208.1500(4). The certificated credits are either nonrefundable or refundable credits. Below is the list of all certificated credits potentially available to financial institutions, and the respective form used for their calculation. Nonrefundable Certificated Credits: • Renaissance Zone Credit (Forms 4595 and 4573) • Historic Preservation Credit (Forms 4573 and 4584) • Brownfield Redevelopment Credit (Forms 4584 and 4573) • Film Infrastructure Credit (Form 4573) • MEGA Poly-Silicon Energy Cost Credit and Miscellaneous MEGA Battery Credits (Forms 4584 and 4573). Refundable Certificated Credits: • Historic Preservation Credit (Form 4573) • Brownfield Redevelopment Credit (Forms 4584 and 4573) • MEGA Employment Tax Credit (Form 4574) 2 Overview of MBT for Financial Institutions In addition, there is an annual surcharge imposed at the rate of 23.4 percent. NOTE: Trust-only banks do not pay a surcharge. Nonrefundable and refundable credits are available for financial institutions to help reduce the initial MBT liability. This includes a limited allowance for Single Business Tax (SBT) credit carryforwards. These forms are available online at www.michigan.gov/taxes. Required CIT Comparison If choosing to file MBT in 2014 to claim certain certificated credits, taxpayers are required to calculate MBT liability as the higher of MBT liability or hypothetical CIT liability. A taxpayer must pay the higher of the two or take the lesser refund. A taxpayer calculates the franchise tax and surcharge of the MBT and applies all credits, including certificated credits, deductions, and exemptions available under the MBT. Then, as if they were subject to the CIT, taxpayers calculate the franchise tax under the CIT and apply deductions available under the CIT. The hypothetical CIT liability is then reduced (not below to zero) by the amount of certificated nonrefundable credit used to offset the MBT liability. The hypothetical CIT liability offset by certificated nonrefundable MBT credits is further reduced by the total amount of certificated refundable credits claimed under the MBT liability calculation, resulting in the taxpayers’ final hypothetical CIT liability. Taxpayers’ final MBT liability consists of the higher of the calculated MBT and hypothetical CIT liabilities. If both MBT and hypothetical CIT liabilities result in tax refunds (negative liability), taxpayers are entitled to the lower refund amount.” Specific forms are provided to perform the MBT to CIT comparison and determine the tax liability or refund. The Michigan Schedule of Corporate Income Tax Liability for a Michigan Business Tax Filer (Form 4946) is used for the standard taxpayer comparison. The Michigan Schedule of Corporate Income Tax Liability for a Michigan Business Tax Insurance Filer (Form 4974) is used for the insurance company’s comparison. The Michigan Schedule of Corporate Income Tax Liability for a Michigan Business Tax Financial Filer (Form 4975) is used for the financial institution’s comparison. Amending Estimates If, after making payments, the estimated tax is substantially different than originally estimated, recompute the tax and adjust the payment in the next quarter. Filing MBT/CIT Quarterly Tax Estimates for 2019 Michigan has an enforced CIT e-file mandate. Software developers producing CIT tax preparation software and computer-generated forms must support e-file for all eligible Michigan forms that are included in their software package. All eligible CIT returns prepared using tax preparation software or computer-generated forms must be e-filed. If estimated liability for the year is reasonably expected to exceed $800, a taxpayer must file estimated returns. A taxpayer may remit quarterly estimated payments by check with a Corporate Income Tax Quarterly Return (Form 4913) or may remit monthly or quarterly estimated payments electronically by Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT). When payments are made by EFT, Form 4913 is not required. Estimated returns and payments for calendar year taxpayers are due to Treasury by April 15, July 15, October 15, and January 15 of the following year. Fiscal year taxpayers should make returns and payments by the appropriate due date which is fifteen days after the end of each fiscal quarter. The sum of estimated payments for each quarter must always reasonably approximate the liability for the quarter. NOTE: Your debit transaction will be ineligible for EFT if the bank account used for the electronic debit is funded or otherwise associated with a foreign account to the extent that the payment transaction would qualify as an International ACH Transaction (IAT) under NACHA Rules. Contact your financial institution for questions about the status of your account. Contact the Michigan Department of Treasury’s (Treasury) EFT Unit at 517-636-6925 for alternate payment methods. The estimated payment made with each quarterly return must be computed on the actual CIT for the quarter, or 25 percent of the estimated total liability if paying a CIT liability. To avoid interest and penalty charges, estimated payments must equal at least 85 percent of the total liability for the tax year and the amount of each estimated payment must reasonably approximate the tax liability for that quarter. If the prior year’s tax is $20,000 or less, estimated tax may be based on the prior year’s total tax liability paid in four equal installments. (“Four equal installments” describes the minimum pace of payments that will satisfy this safe harbor.) If the prior year’s tax liability was reported for a period less than 12 months, this amount must be annualized for purposes of both the $20,000 ceiling and calculating the quarterly payments due under this method. Payments at a more accelerated pace also will qualify. If the year’s tax liability is $800 or less, estimates are not required. NOTE: For those continuing to file MBT, reliance on the tax liability of the prior year as a means to avoid interest and penalty charges is only allowed if you had business activity in Michigan in that prior year. A return must be filed to establish the tax liability for that prior year, even if gross receipts in the prior year were less than $350,000. In addition, if your business was not in existence in the preceding year, no safe harbor exists. In such a case, estimates must be based on the MBT liability for the current year. For those filing CIT, there is no safe harbor in this first year of CIT filing. The estimates must equal at least 85 percent of the total liability as stated above. Electronic Filing of MBT Returns Treasury will be enforcing the CIT e-file mandate. The enforcement includes not processing computer-generated paper returns that are eligible to be e-filed. A notice will be mailed to the taxpayer, indicating that the taxpayer’s return was not filed in the proper form and content and must be e-filed. Payment received with a paper return will be processed and credited to the taxpayer’s account even when the return is not processed. Treasury will continue to accept certain Portable Document Format (PDF) attachments with CIT e-filed returns. A current list of defined attachments is available in the CIT “Michigan Tax Preparer Handbook for Electronic Filing Programs,” which is available on the Treasury Web site at www.MIfastfile.org by clicking on “Tax Preparer,” then “Corporate Income Tax Handbook” for the applicable tax year. Follow your software instructions for submitting attachments with an e-filed return. If the MBT return includes supporting documentation or attachments that are not on the predefined list of attachments, the return can still be e-filed. Follow your software instructions for including additional attachments. The tax preparer or taxpayer should retain file copies of all documentation or attachments. For more information and program updates, including exclusions from e-file, visit the e-file Web site at www.MIfastfile.org. The taxpayer may be required to e-file its federal return. Visit the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Web site at www.irs.gov for more information on federal e-file requirements and the IRS Federal/State Modernized e-File (MeF) program. Complete Federal Tax Forms First Before preparing MBT returns, complete all federal tax forms. These forms may include: • Fiduciaries — U.S. Form 1041, 1065, and related Schedules C, C-EZ, D, E, K, 4797, and 8825. • Corporations — U.S. Form 1120, 1120-S, and Schedules D, K, 851, 940, 4562, 4797, and 8825. • Limited Liability Companies (LLCs) — federal forms listed above, depending on how federal returns have been filed. Reference these federal forms to complete Form 4590. Copies of certain pages from these federal forms must also be attached to the annual return filed. See the instructions for Form 4590 for further details. 3 Completing Michigan Forms Treasury captures the information from paper MBT returns using an Intelligent Character Recognition process. If completing a paper return, avoid unnecessary delays caused by manual processing by following the guidelines below so the return is processed quickly and accurately. • Use black or blue ink. Do not use pencil, red ink, or felt tip pens. Do not highlight information. • Print using capital letters (UPPER CASE). Capital letters are easier to recognize. • Print numbers like this: 012345678. Do not put a slash through the zero ( ) or seven ( 7). • Fill check boxes with an [X]. Do not use a check mark [ a]. • Leave lines/boxes blank if they do not apply or if the amount is zero, unless otherwise instructed. • Do not enter data in boxes filled with Xs. • Do not write extra numbers, symbols, or notes on the return, such as cents, dashes, decimal points (excluding percentages), or dollar signs, unless otherwise instructed. Enclose any explanations on a separate sheet unless instructed to write explanations on the return. • Date format, unless otherwise specified, should be in the following format: MM-DD-YYYY. Use dashes (-) rather than slashes (/). • Enter phone numbers using dashes (e.g., 517-555-5555); do not use parentheses. • Stay within the lines when entering information in boxes. • Report losses and negative amounts with a negative sign in front of the number (do not use parentheses). For example, a loss in the amount of $22,459 should be reported as -22,459. • Percentages should be carried out four digits to the right of the decimal point. Do not round percentages. For example, 24.154266 percent becomes 24.1542 percent. When converting a percentage to a decimal number, carry numbers out six digits to the right of the decimal point. For example, 24.154266 percent becomes 0.241542. • Report all amounts in whole dollars. Round down amounts of 49 cents or less. Round up amounts of 50 cents or more. If cents are entered on the form, they will be treated as whole dollar amounts. Suggested Order of Analysis and Preparation of an MBT Annual Return First, determine whether the taxpayer has a certificated credit. If the financial institution taxpayer does not have a certificated credit, it is subject to the CIT. Additionally, for all certificated credits other than qualifying Historic Preservation or Brownfield credits, the taxpayer must have made the election for its first tax year ending after December 31, 2011, in order to continue under the MBT. For a taxpayer using Form 4590, first complete lines 1 through 26. At that point, if any nonrefundable credits will be claimed, begin the MBT Nonrefundable Credits Summary (Form 4568), which serves several important functions: • Acts as a checklist of nonrefundable credits • Identifies the order in which nonrefundable credits must be claimed 4 • Identifies the form on which each nonrefundable credit is calculated • Tracks tax liability as it is reduced by each credit in proper order • Identifies (where applicable) the point at which tax liability reaches zero and no further nonrefundable credits may be claimed in the current filing period. Complete Form 4568 from top to bottom. For each credit the taxpayer qualifies for, calculate the credit as identified on the appropriate form and bring the result back to the appropriate line on Form 4568. After total nonrefundable credits are determined on Form 4568, line 40, carry the figure to Form 4590, line 27. The lines following are straightforward, but take care to consider any available refundable credits on Form 4590, Part 2. Further General Guidance For purposes of MBT, person means an individual, firm, bank, financial institution, insurance company, limited partnership, limited liability partnership, copartnership, partnership, joint venture, association, corporation, S corporation, LLC, receiver, estate, trust, or any other group or combination of groups acting as a unit. A taxpayer includes a single person or a UBG liable for tax, interest, or penalty. A UBG must file a combined MBT return (addressed in the “UBGs and Combined Filing” section of this General Information). Limited Liability Company. An LLC is classified for MBT purposes according to its federal tax classification. The following terms, whenever used in MBT forms, instructions, and statute, include LLCs as indicated: S Corporation includes an LLC federally taxed as an S Corporation, and a member of this LLC is a shareholder. C Corporation includes an LLC federally taxed as a C Corporation, and a member of this LLC is a shareholder. A member or other person performing duties similar to those of an officer in a true corporation is an officer in this LLC. NOTE: In this booklet, the term “corporation,” used without a C or S, generally refers to both types. A person that is a disregarded entity for federal income tax purposes under the internal revenue code must file as a disregarded entity for MBT purposes. 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. Fiduciaries filing for Trusts engaged in business activity must file an MBT return and report the total business activity. UBGs and Combined Filing NOTE: UBGs are addressed below, in general. In the instructions for each form, “Special Instructions for Unitary Business Groups” are located directly before “Line-by-Line Instructions.” The areas in the “Line-by-Line Instructions” that apply only to UBGs are labeled “UBGs.” Additional direction is found in the “Supplemental Instructions for Standard Members in UBGs.” Determining the Existence and Membership of a UBG 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. 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 20102, MBT—Unitary Business Group Relationship Tests, on Treasury’s Web site at www.michigan.gov/treasury. (Click on “Reports and Legal Resources.”) Filing the Correct Form A different primary return and instruction booklet are required for standard taxpayers (Form 4567) and insurance companies (Form 4588). Filing if Tax Year Is Less Than 12 Months Generally, annual returns must be filed for the same period as federal income tax returns. Tax year means the calendar year, or the fiscal year ending during the calendar year, upon the basis of which the tax base of a taxpayer is computed. If a return is made for a fractional part of a year, tax year means the period for which the return is made. A taxpayer that has a 52- or 53-week tax year beginning not more than seven days before December 31 of any year is considered to have a tax year beginning after December of that tax year. (NOTE: While the examples below are for a prior tax year, the concepts apply to the current tax year.) Relationship Tests. The definition of a UBG requires, in addition to satisfying the control test, that the group of persons have business activities or operations that either: Example 1: A taxpayer with a federal tax year beginning on Monday, December 29, 2008, will be treated as follows: 1) Result in a flow of value between or among persons in the group, or • 2008 tax year end of December 31, 2008. • Due date of April 30, 2009. • 2009 tax year beginning January 1, 2009. 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. Example 2: A taxpayer with a federal tax year ending on Sunday, January 3, 2010, will be treated as follows: • 2009 tax year end of December 31, 2009. • Due date of April 30, 2010. • 2010 tax year beginning on January 1, 2010. Example 3: A 52- or 53-week year closing near the end of January is common in the retail industry. Such a taxpayer will be treated as follows: • 2008-09 fiscal year end will be January 31, 2009. • Due date will be May 31, 2009. • 2009-10 fiscal year will begin on February 1, 2009. Annualizing If the filing period is less than 12 months, annualize the prior year’s tax liability to determine whether estimates may be based on that liability. If the prior year’s annualized liability is $20,000 or less, estimates may be based on the annualized amount if paid in four equal, timely, installments. If annualization is required, multiply the prior year’s tax liability by 12 and divide the result by the number of months the business operated. Generally, a business is considered in business for a month if the business operated for more than half the days of that month. A business whose entire tax year is 15 days or less, however, is considered in business for one month. EXAMPLE: A fiscal year taxpayer with a tax year ending in 5 June files a six-month return ending June 2010 reporting a tax liability of $9,000. Estimates for the tax year ending June 2011 may be based on the annualized liability of $18,000. Estimates must be paid in four equal, timely installments of $4,500. Fiduciaries: A business registered as a Fiduciary that is in business less than 12 months is not required to annualize. Due Dates of Annual Returns Annual returns are due on or before the last day of the fourth month after the end of the tax year. For example, a return for calendar year 2020 is due April 30, 2021. A return for a fiscal year ending June 30, 2021, is due October 31, 2021. Additional Filing Time If additional time is needed to file an annual tax return, request a Michigan extension by filing an Application for Extension of Time to File Michigan Tax Returns (Form 4). Check the box for MBT to extend the time to file an MBT return. UBG NOTE: Extension requests must be filed under the name and account number of a UBG’s designated member to be a valid request for extension. Filing a federal extension request with the IRS does not automatically grant an MBT extension. The IRS does not notify state governments of extensions. A request for a Michigan extension must be received and approved to avoid penalty on the tax due. Extension applications must be postmarked on or before the due date of an annual return. Although Treasury may grant extensions for filing MBT returns, it will not extend the time to pay. Extension applications received without proper payment will not be processed. Penalty and interest will accrue on the unpaid tax from the original due date of the return. Properly filed and paid estimates along with the amount included on the extension application will be accepted as payment on a tentative return, and an extension may be granted. It is important that the application is completed correctly. Once a properly prepared and timely filed application along with appropriate estimated tax payments is received, Treasury will grant an extension of eight months to file the tax return. Any estimated tax that may be due with the request should be paid in the same manner as estimated payments were paid during the year. A written response will be sent to the legal address on file when a valid extension application is received. If an MBT extension is filed on time but the total payments received by the original due date are less than 90 percent of the tax liability, a 10 percent negligence penalty may apply. IMPORTANT: If no tax is owed, there is no need to file an extension with Michigan by the due date of the return to avoid penalty. However, without an approved extension, it is necessary to file an annual return as soon as the information is available to do so. An extension of time to file will also extend the statute of limitations. 6 Amending a Return A taxpayer may not amend to revoke the election to remain taxable under the MBT. Once the taxpayer makes a valid election to claim a certificated credit, the taxpayer must remain in the MBT until the certificated credit and any carryforward of that credit are exhausted. Most certificated credits must be claimed for the taxpayer’s first tax year ending after December 31, 2011. To amend a current or prior year annual return, complete the Form 4590 that is applicable for that year and check the box in the upper-right corner of the return, and attach a separate sheet explaining the reason for the changes. Include all schedules filed with the original return, even if not amending that schedule. Enter the figures on the amended return as they should be. Do not include a copy of the original return with your amended return. Current and past year forms are available on Treasury’s Web site at www.michigan.gov/treasuryforms. To amend a return to claim a refund, file within four years of the due date of the original return (including valid extensions). Most certificated credits must be claimed for the taxpayer’s first tax year ending after December 31, 2011. Interest will be paid beginning 45 days after the claim is filed or the due date, whichever is later. If amending a return to report a deficiency, penalty and interest may apply from the due date of the original return. If any changes are made to a federal income tax return that affect an MBT tax base, filing an amended return is required. To avoid penalty, file the amended return within 120 days after the final determination by the IRS. Computing Penalty and Interest Annual and estimated returns filed late or without sufficient payment of the tax due are subject to a penalty of 5 percent of the tax due, for the first two months. Penalty increases by an additional 5 percent per month, or fraction thereof, after the second month, to a maximum of 25 percent. Compute penalty and interest for underpaid estimates using the MBT Penalty and Interest Computation for Underpaid Estimated Tax (Form 4582). If a taxpayer prefers not to file this form, Treasury will compute the penalty and interest and send a bill. The following chart shows the interest rate that applies to each filing period.

Instructions for Form 4590 Michigan Business Tax (MBT) Annual Return for Financial Institutions Purpose To calculate a tax liability and claim credits for a financial institution for MBT. NOTE: Beginning January 1, 2012, only those taxpayers with a certificated credit, which is awarded but not yet fully claimed or utilized, may elect to be MBT taxpayers. If a taxpayer files an MBT return and claims a certificated credit, the taxpayer makes the election to file and pay under the MBT until the certificated credit and any carryforward of that credit are exhausted. General Instructions MBT Liability: Beginning January 1, 2012, a taxpayer calculates MBT liability as the greater of MBT liability after all credits, deductions, and exemptions or hypothetical Corporate Income Tax (CIT) liability minus deductions and credits available under that act and minus certificated credits allowed under the MBT. This calculation of liability requires a taxpayer to calculate net equity tax base and apply available MBT credits, including certificated credits, deductions, and exemptions available under the MBT. Then, the taxpayer will calculate the CIT comparison on Schedule of Corporate Income Tax Liability for a Financial Filer (Form 4975). A taxpayer is permitted to reduce hypothetical CIT liability by all deductions and credits which would be allowed under that tax as well as the amount of certificated credit allowed under the MBT. The amount of certificated credit allowed under the MBT is the amount of nonrefundable credit needed to offset MBT liability or the entire amount of a refundable credit. If the taxpayer’s hypothetical CIT liability would be higher than its MBT liability, the taxpayer will add the difference to MBT liability on line 31 of this form (4590). This is the CIT adjustment. If the result of both steps of the calculation is a negative number, the taxpayer will receive a refund of the lower negative; but a nonrefundable credit cannot be used to reduce liability below zero. Remaining nonrefundable certificated credit may be carried forward to succeeding tax years. Special Instructions for Unitary Business Groups A Unitary Business Group (UBG) is a group of United States persons, other than a foreign operating entity, that satisfies the following criteria: • One of the persons owns or controls, directly or indirectly, more than 50 percent of the ownership interest with voting rights (or rights comparable to voting rights) of the other United States persons; AND • The UBG has operations which result in a flow of value between persons in the UBG or has operations that are integrated with, are dependent upon, or contribute to each other. Flow of value is determined by reviewing the totality of facts and circumstances of business activities and operations. All financial institution members of a UBG must file a combined Form 4590 for the group with a Designated Member (DM) who must be the controlling member of the group, unless the controlling member does not have nexus with Michigan. If that is the case, the controlling member may appoint a group member with nexus to serve as the DM. NOTE: The MBT Unitary Business Group Combined Filing Schedule for Financial Institutions (Form 4752) must be completed before completing Form 4590. For more information on UBGs, see the instructions for Form 4752, available online at the Department of Treasury (Treasury) Web site at www.michigan.gov/taxes. For more information on the control and relationship tests for UBGs, see Revenue Administrative Bulletin (RAB) 2010-1 Michigan Business Tax-Unitary Business Group Control Test and RAB 2010-2 Michigan Business Tax-Unitary Business Group Relationship Tests on the Treasury Web site. NOTE: Under the foregoing definition, a UBG may include financial institutions, insurance companies, and standard taxpayers. A group containing a mixture of these three taxpayer types may be required to file two or more returns to properly report the activities of the different taxpayer types within the group. Under Michigan Compiled Law (MCL) 208.1261(f), financial institution means any of the following: i. 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 Stated Code (USC) 1467a(a)(F) or a federally chartered Farm Credit System institution. ii. Any entity, other than an entity subject to the tax imposed under Chapter 2A (insurance company), who is directly or indirectly owned by an entity described in (i) and is a member of the UBG. iii. A UBG of entities described in (i) or (ii), or both. NOTE: Because the definition of financial institution for MBT purposes includes any entity (except an insurance company) that is owned by a bank or other entity (as described above) and is a member of a UBG with its parent, this may cause an entity that is not commonly thought of as a financial institution to be defined as one for return filing purposes. A UBG of financial institutions must file a combined return on this Form 4590 that includes each member of the group that is a financial institution. Taxpayer Certification A return filed by a UBG must be signed by an individual authorized to sign on behalf of the DM. Provide the telephone number of that individual at the DM’s office. Line-by-Line Instructions Lines not listed are explained on the form. Dates must be entered in MM-DD-YYYY format. For periods less than 12 months, see the “General Information for Financial Institutions” in the MBT Forms and Instructions for Financial Institutions (Form 4599). 11 UBGs: Complete Form 4752 before beginning Form 4590. Amended Returns: To amend a current or prior year annual return, complete the Form 4590 that is applicable for that year, check the box in the upper-right corner of the return, and attach a separate sheet explaining the reason for the changes. Include an amended federal return or a signed and dated Internal Revenue Service (IRS) audit document. Include all schedules filed with the original return, even if not amending that schedule. Enter the figures on the amended return as they should be. Do not include a copy of the originally filed return with the amended return. A taxpayer may not amend to revoke the election to remain taxable under the MBT. Once the taxpayer makes a valid election to claim a certificated credit, the taxpayer must remain in the MBT until the credit and any carryforward of that credit are exhausted. Line 1: Unless a calendar year, enter the beginning and ending dates (MM-DD-YYYY) that correspond to the taxable period as reported to the IRS. Tax year means the calendar year, or the fiscal year ending during the calendar year, upon the basis of which the tax base of a taxpayer is computed. If a return is made for a fractional part of a year, tax year means the period for which the return covers. Generally, a taxpayer’s tax year is for the same period as is covered by its federal income tax return. Fiscal Year Filers: See “Supplemental Instructions for Fiscal MBT Filers — Financial Institutions” in Form 4599. Line 2: Enter the complete address and, if other than the United States, enter the two-digit abbreviation for the country code. See the list of country codes in Form 4599.

Taxpayers registering with the State online usually receive an account number within seven days. Returns received without a registered account number will not be processed until such time as a number is provided. UBGs: Enter the FEIN or TR Number for the DM of the financial group. Line 8: Check the box that describes the DM’s organization type. A Trust or a Limited Liability Company (LLC) should check the appropriate box based on its federal return. NOTE: A person that is 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. Any correspondence regarding the return filed and/or refund will be sent to the address used here. Check the new address box if the address used on this line has changed from the last filing. The taxpayer’s primary address in the Department of Treasury (Treasury) files, identified as the legal address and used for all purposes other than refund and correspondence on a specific MBT return, will not change until the customer specifically makes the change on their Michigan Treasury Online (MTO) account.

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.
