Michigan Department of Treasury — 4907 (Rev. 12-18) 2018 General Information for Financial Institutions Standard Taxpayers and Insurance Companies: See the Corporate Income Tax (CIT) Instruction Booklet for Standard Taxpayers (Form 4890) or the CIT Instruction Booklet for Insurance Companies (Form 4904) at www.michigan.gov/taxes. This booklet is intended as a guide to help complete the CIT return. It does not take the place of the law. Who Files a Financial Return? File a CIT Annual Return for Financial Institutions (Form 4908) if the taxpayer is any of the following: • A bank holding company, a national bank, a state chartered bank, a state chartered savings bank, a federally chartered savings association, or a federally chartered farm credit system institution. • Any entity, other than an entity subject to the tax imposed under Chapter 12 (insurance company), who is directly or indirectly owned by an entity described in 206.651(f)(i) and is a member of the UBG. • A UBG consisting of entities described above. NOTE: Because the definition of financial institution for CIT 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 treated as one for return filing purposes. A UBG of financial institutions must file a combined return on Form 4908 that includes each member of the group that is a financial institution. If the taxpayer is not any of the above, check to see if filing either the Insurance Company Annual Return for Corporate Income and Retaliatory Taxes (Form 4905) or the CIT Annual Return (Form 4891) for standard filers is required. Using This Booklet This CIT financial institution booklet includes forms and instructions for financial institutions. These forms are designed for calendar year 2018 and for a fiscal filer with a federal tax year ending in 2019. Read the “General Information” first. It is recommended that taxpayers and tax preparers review the instructions for all forms. Overview of CIT for Financial Institutions Every financial institution with nexus in Michigan is subject to a franchise tax. The franchise tax is imposed upon the tax base of the financial institution after allocation or apportionment to Michigan at the rate of 0.29 percent. Filing CIT Quarterly Tax Estimates 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. NOTE: Formerly, taxpayers could pay by check on a monthly or quarterly basis by remitting a check with a Combined Return for Michigan Tax (Form 160). Form 160 was replaced. The new form no longer accommodates CIT payments. As a result, Form 4913 is the only form that supports a CIT estimated payment. 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) Corporate Income Tax Division 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 under the Income Tax Act 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: 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 and filed a CIT return for 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 CIT liability for the current year. There is no prior-year safe harbor for a taxpayer’s first CIT tax period. For a taxpayer’s first CIT tax period the estimates must equal at least 85 percent of the total CIT liability, as explained above. 1 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. Electronic Filing of CIT Returns 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. 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 CIT 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 CIT 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 4908. Copies of certain pages from these federal forms must also be attached to the annual return filed. See the instructions for Form 4908 for further details. 2 Completing Michigan Forms Treasury captures the information from paper CIT 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: 0123456789. 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 CIT Annual Return First, determine whether the taxpayer has nexus with Michigan. Nexus is a legal term that expresses whether a taxpayer has sufficient connection to Michigan to justify subjecting the taxpayer to Michigan tax. For information on nexus, and other CIT issues, see the Michigan Department of Treasury (Treasury) Web site at www.michigan.gov/treasury. (Click on the “Corporate Income Tax” on the left side of the page.) Treasury will post updates here and via Revenue Administrative Bulletin (available in the “Reference” link on the left side of the page). For a taxpayer using Form 4908, first complete lines 1 through 20, which is sufficient to calculate total liability before recapture of Certain Business Tax Credits. At that point, if any recapture of credits exists begin the CIT Schedule of Recapture of Certain Business Tax Credits (Form 4902). Further General Guidance For purposes of CIT, taxpayer means a C Corporation, insurance company, financial institution, or a unitary business group liable for tax, interest, or penalty. A Unitary Business Group (UBG) is a group of United States persons that are corporations, insurance companies, or financial institutions, 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 members; AND • The UBG has operations which result in a flow of value between the members 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 must file a combined return (addressed in the “UBGs and Combined Filing” section of this General Information). NOTE: In general, a person that is a disregarded entity for federal tax purposes must file as if it were a branch or division if owned by another business entity. UBGs and Combined Filing NOTE: UBGs are addressed here, 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” section of this instruction booklet. General Overview of Unitary Taxation More than 20 states have adopted unitary taxation. Unitary taxation is a method of taxing related persons that, if it applies, generally treats those related persons as if they were one. There are specific tests, discussed below, to determine whether two or more business entities are sufficiently connected by ownership and business relationships to be treated as a group. If those tests are satisfied and a UBG is found to exist, in most cases the members of that UBG will file a single CIT return. One member will be designated as the group’s representative for filing the return and corresponding with Treasury. Included in that return will be separate forms that report income, deductions, and activities separately by member, and then the combined amounts are entered on the Form 4891. References in the instructions to “the taxpayer” generally will refer to the group rather than any one of its members. This is a simplification for introductory purposes, and there are many details and exceptions described throughout the CIT forms and instructions. In particular, tax credits, transactions between members, and the presence of financial institutions or insurance companies in the group require careful attention. One key issue in dealing properly with unitary taxation is to recognize that it is not limited to large, multi-state companies. Businesses of any size and any geographic extent may find that they are members of a UBG. Determining the Existence and Membership of a UBG Unitary Business Group means a group of United States persons that are corporations, insurance companies, or financial institutions, other than a foreign operating entity, that satisfies the control test and relationship test. • Control test. 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 members; AND • Relationship test. The UBG has operations which result in a flow of value between the members 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. Additional information can be found under the “Corporate Income Tax” page at www.michigan.gov/taxes (see Revenue Administrative Bulletin (RAB) 2013-1, Unitary Business Group Control Test And Relationship Tests). United States person is defined in the Internal Revenue Code (IRC) § 7701(a)(30). A foreign operating entity means a United States corporation that would otherwise be a part of a UBG that is taxable in Michigan; has substantial operations outside the United States, the District of Columbia, any territory or possession of the United States except for the commonwealth of Puerto Rico, or a political subdivision of the foregoing; and at least 80 percent of its income is active foreign business income as defined in IRC § 871(l)(1)(B)(ii). An alternate, elective method for determining the existence and membership of a UBG under the affiliated group election is discussed in the instructions for Form 4908. Filing the Correct Form A different primary return and instruction booklet are available for standard taxpayers (Form 4891) and insurance companies (Form 4905). Filing if Tax Year Is Less Than 12 Months 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 3 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.) Example 1: A taxpayer with a federal tax year beginning on Saturday, December 28, 2013, will be treated as follows: • 2013 tax year end of December 31, 2013. • Due date of April 30, 2014. • 2014 tax year beginning January 1, 2014. Example 2: A taxpayer with a federal tax year ending on Friday, January 3, 2014, will be treated as follows: • 2013 tax year end of December 31, 2013. • Due date of April 30, 2014. • 2014 tax year beginning on January 1, 2014. 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: • 2013-14 fiscal year end will be January 31, 2014. • Due date will be May 31, 2014. • 2014-15 fiscal year will begin on February 1, 2014. Annualizing If the prior 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. To annualize the prior year’s tax liability, 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 one month if the business operated for more than half the days of the 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 June files a six-month return ending June 2014 reporting a tax liability of $9,000. Estimates for the tax year ending June 2015 may be based on the annualized liability of $18,000. Estimates must be paid in four equal installments of $4,500. Due Dates of Annual Returns Annual returns of calendar year taxpayers are due by April 30, 2017. For fiscal years ending in 2017, the 2016-2017 fiscal year return will be due on the last day of the fourth month after the end of the tax year. 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). Filing a federal extension request with the IRS does not automatically grant a CIT extension. The IRS does not notify state governments of extensions. 4 Extension applications must be postmarked on or before the due date of an annual return. Although Treasury may grant extensions for filing CIT 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 a CIT 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. An extension of time to file will also extend the statute of limitations. Amending a Return To amend a current or prior year annual return, complete the Michigan CIT Amended Return for Financial Institutions (Form 4909) that is applicable for that year, explaining the reason for the changes. Include all schedules filed with the original return, even if not amending that schedule. 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). 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 the CIT 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 CIT Penalty and Interest Computation for Underpaid Estimated Tax (Form 4899). 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. A new interest rate is set at 1 percent above the adjusted prime rate for each six-month period. Beginning Date Rate Daily Rate January 1, 2018 5.15% 0.0001411 July 1, 2018 5.41% 0.0001482 January 1, 2019 5.9% 0.0001616 For a list of interest rates, see the Revenue Administrative Bulletins (RABs) on the Treasury Web site at www.michigan.gov/taxes. (Click on the “Reference” link on the left side of the page.) Signing the Return All returns must be signed and dated by the taxpayer or the taxpayer’s authorized agent. This may be the owner, corporate officer, or association member. The corporate officer may be the president, vice president, treasurer, assistant treasurer, chief accounting officer, or any other corporate officer (such as tax officer) authorized to sign the corporation’s tax return. If someone other than the above prepared the return, the preparer must give his or her business address and telephone number. Print the name of the authorized signer and preparer in the appropriate area on the return. Assemble the returns and attachments (in sequence order) and use a clip in the upper-left corner or rubber band the pages together. (Do not staple a check to the return.) In an e-filed return, the preparation software will assemble the forms and PDF attachments in the proper order automatically. software after reading the perjury statement displayed in the software. The taxpayer PIN will be selected by the taxpayer, or the taxpayer may authorize his or her tax preparer to select the taxpayer PIN. The MI-8879 (Form 4763) will be printed and contain the taxpayer PIN. The tax preparer will retain Form MI-8879 in his or her records as part of the taxpayer’s printed return. CIT State Stand Alone e-filings submitted without a taxpayer PIN will be rejected by Treasury. Do not mail Form MI-8879 to Treasury and do not include Form MI-8879 as an attachment with the e-file return.

Instructions for Form 4908 Corporate Income Tax (CIT) Annual Return for Financial Institutions Purpose The Affiliated Group Election To calculate tax liability of a financial institution for CIT. The affiliated group election allows a group of persons that satisfy the definition of “affiliated group,” (see below) to elect to be treated as a UBG under the CIT even if those persons do not satisfy the relationship test of MCL 208.611(6). The relationship test is discussed in the “UBGs and Combined Filing” section of Form 4907, and online at www.michigan.gov/taxes. Every financial institution engaged in business activity in Michigan must file an annual return. However, a taxpayer whose tax liability is less than or equal to $100 does not need to file a return or pay the tax. Instructions for Unitary Business Groups All financial institution members of a Unitary Business Group (UBG) must file a combined Form 4908 for the group with a Designated Member (DM) that 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. UBGs: Complete the CIT Unitary Business Group Combined Filing Schedule for Financial Institutions (Form 4910) before beginning Form 4908. For more information on UBGs, see the CIT Forms and Instructions for Financial Institutions (Form 4907), or go online to the Department of Treasury Web site at www. michigan.gov/treasuryforms. NOTE: 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 Public Act 38 of 2011, Section 651(f), financial institution means any of the following: i. A bank holding company, a national bank, a state chartered bank, a state chartered savings bank, a federally chartered savings association, or a federally chartered farm credit system institution. ii. Any entity, other than an entity subject to the tax imposed under Chapter 12 (insurance company), that 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 CIT 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 owner, this may cause an entity that is not commonly thought of as a financial institution to be treated as one for return filing purposes. A UBG of financial institutions must file a combined return on Form 4908 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. The term “affiliated group” means that term as defined in section 1504 of the IRC except that 1) the term includes all United States persons that are corporations, insurance companies, or financial institutions, other than a foreign operating entity, and 2) the entities listed in (1) are commonly owned, directly or indirectly, by any member of such affiliated group and other members of which more than 50 percent of the ownership interests with voting rights or ownership interests that confer comparable rights to voting rights of the member is directly or indirectly owned by a common owner or owners. A taxpayer makes the election by affirmatively indicating so on the annual return (see line 8a). The affiliated group members are treated as members of a UBG for all purposes. Once an election is made, it is irrevocable and binding for the tax year plus the next 9 tax years. See MCL 206.691(2) for more information. 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 “General Information for Financial Institutions” in the Michigan CIT for Financial Institutions booklet, Form 4907. Amended Returns: To amend a current or prior year return, complete the CIT Amended Return for Financial Institutions (Form 4909) that is applicable for that year, and attach a separate sheet explaining the reason for the changes. Include a copy of an amended federal return or a signed and dated copy of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) audit report, if applicable. Submit a complete amended return including all necessary attachments. Do not include a copy of the original return with your amended return. Find detailed instructions on Form 4909. 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. Line 2: Enter the taxpayer’s name and Federal Employer Identification Number (FEIN) in the appropriate fields. Be sure to use the same account number on all forms. The taxpayer FEIN from page 1 must be repeated in the proper location on page 2. 9 For CIT, taxpayer means a corporation, insurance company, financial institution, or a UBG liable for tax, interest, or penalty. Line 7: 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: Unless already registered, taxpayers must register with the Michigan Department of Treasury before filing a tax return. Taxpayers are encouraged to register online at www.michigan.gov/businesstaxes. Taxpayers that register with Treasury online receive their registration confirmation within seven days. NOTE: For CIT purposes, a disregarded entity is treated as a part of its owner. If the taxpayer does not have an FEIN, the taxpayer must obtain an FEIN before filing the CIT. The Web site www.michigan.gov/businesstaxes provides information on obtaining an FEIN. Returns received without a registered account number will not be processed until such time as a number is provided. Enter the two-digit abbreviation for the country code. See the list of country codes in Form 4907. Any refund or correspondence from this return will be sent to the address used on this form. The taxpayer’s primary address in Treasury files, identified as the legal address and used for all purposes other than refund and correspondence on a specific CIT return, will not change unless the taxpayer files a Notice of Change or Discontinuance (Form 163). UBGs: In the Taxpayer Name field, enter the name of the DM for the financial institutions. Enter the FEIN of the DM of the financial group. FOREIGN FILERS: Complete the address fields as follows: Address: Enter the postal address for this taxpayer. City: Enter the city name for this taxpayer. DO NOT include the country name in this field. State: Enter the two-letter state or province abbreviation. If there is no applicable two-letter abbreviation, leave this field blank. ZIP/Postal Code: Enter the ZIP Code or Postal Code. Country Code: Enter the two-letter country code provided in this tax booklet. Line 3: Enter a brief description of the principal types of financial services in which the taxpayer is engaged. Line 8a: Enter here the end date — in an MM-DD-YYYY format — of the tax year in which the affiliated group election was first made. The election lasts 10 years and is irrevocable. Calendar year filers that made this election beginning 2013, and fiscal filers that made this election beginning with the 201314 fiscal year, completed the Michigan Corporate Income Tax Affiliated Group Election to File as a Unitary Business Group (Form 5114) to make the election. Enter here the end date — in an MM-DD-YYYY format — of the tax year for which Form 5114 was filed. Taxpayers that first make this election beginning calendar year 2014 or later do not use Form 5114, which is now discontinued. Instead, make the election on this line of the return filed for the first year of the election, by entering the end date of that filing period in an MM-DD-YYYY format. Line 8b: Check this box if filing a Michigan UBG return and include Form 4910. Lines 9a through 9c: A taxpayer may apportion on lines 9a through 9c only if its business activities are subject to tax both within and outside of Michigan. A financial institution is subject to tax in another state, as that term is used here, only if: • It 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, or a corporate stock tax or a tax of the type imposed under the Income Tax Act in that other state; OR • That other state has jurisdiction to subject the financial institution to one or more of the taxes listed above regardless of whether that state does or does not subject the financial institution to such a tax.

UBGs: Carry amount from Form 4910, line 2C, to line 9a, and the amount from Form 4910, line 3C, to line 9b. PART 1: FRANCHISE TAX The following tax base calculation involves a five-year average of net capital. Enter data from the current year and four most recent CIT and Michigan Business Tax (MBT) tax years to complete the five-year table. For purposes of this table, treat a partial year as a full year. If the current and four preceding tax years include any short periods, the years printed in column headings for this part will not apply accurately. For example, assuming no short periods reported for federal purposes, a financial institution with a fiscal year-end of August 31 would average the net capital for tax years ending August 31, 2010, August 31, 2011, December 31, 2011, August 31, 2012, and August 31, 2013. Fiscal filers, see the supplemental instructions to Form 4907. Line 10: Enter equity capital as of the last day of the filing period, as computed in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). If the financial institution does not maintain its books and records in accordance with GAAP, net capital must be computed in accordance with the books 11 and records used by the financial institution, so long as the method fairly reflects the financial institution’s net capital for purposes of CIT. If the financial institution owns a subsidiary that is an authorized insurance company, the equity capital of the insurance subsidiary is not included in the financial institution’s equity capital. Attach supporting schedules. While it may be possible to end up with negative net equity, beginning with negative equity capital is not permitted. UBGs: Leave lines 10 through 17 blank, complete line 18 with combined data from Form 4910, line 22, and proceed with the rest of the lines on Form 4908. NOTE: In completing the combined return, a member of a UBG of financial institutions eliminates its investment of the positive equity capital in other members of the same group. Eliminations occur to equity capital at the member level. Because each member of the group must compute the Net Capital tax base in accordance with GAAP, each member should represent a positive or zero equity capital before Eliminations. Line 11: Under PA 38 of 2011, Section 651(k), Michigan obligations means a bond, note, or other obligation issued by a governmental unit described in Section 3 of the Shared Credit Rating Act, Public Act 227 of 1985, MCL 141.1053. Line 12: Under PA 38 of 2011, Section 651(s), United States obligations means all obligations of the United States exempt from taxation under 31 USC 3124(a) or exempt under the United States constitution or any federal statute, including the obligations of any instrumentality or agency of the United States that are exempt from state or local taxation under the United States Constitution or any statute of the United States. Line 15a: If this taxpayer owns a subsidiary that is an authorized insurance company, enter the actual amount of the capital fund maintained within that subsidiary. This does not include a captive insurance company. Line 15b: Enter the minimum capital fund amount required by regulations for that insurance subsidiary. Line 18: UBGs: Combine Forms 4910, line 22, and enter the total here. If the combined amount is less than zero, enter zero. UBGs should leave Form 4908, lines 10 through 17 blank. PART 2: PAYMENTS AND TAX DUE UBGs: On lines 23 through 25, enter combined data for all members included on this combined return. Line 23: Enter overpayment credited from prior MBT or CIT return. Line 24: Enter the total estimated CIT tax paid with the CIT Quarterly Tax Return (Form 4913) or the amount of estimated CIT tax paid through Electronic Funds Transfer. Include all payments made on returns that apply to the tax year included in this return. Line 25: Enter tax paid with the Application for Extension of Time to File Michigan Tax Returns (Form 4). Line 28: If penalty and interest are owed for failure to make sufficient and timely estimated payments, complete the CIT Penalty and Interest Computation for Underpaid Estimated Tax (Form 4899) to compute penalty and interest due. If a 12 taxpayer chooses not to file this form, Treasury will compute penalty and interest and bill for payment. (Form 4899 is available on the Web at www.michigan.gov/taxes.) Line 29: Refer to the “Computing Penalty and Interest” section in Form 4907 to determine the annual return penalty rate and use the following Overdue Tax Penalty worksheet. WORKSHEET – OVERDUE TAX PENALTY A. Tax due from Form 4908, line 27......... B. Late/extension or insufficient payment penalty percentage................. C. Multiply line A by line B...................... 00 % 00 Carry amount from line C to Form 4908, line 29. Line 31: Use the following worksheet to calculate Overdue Tax Interest. A. B. C. D. E. WORKSHEET – OVERDUE TAX INTEREST Tax due from Form 4908, line 27......... Applicable daily interest percentage ..... Number of days return was past due.... Multiply line B by line C ..................... Multiply line A by line D .................... 00 % 00 Carry amount from line E to Form 4908, line 30. NOTE: If the late period spans more than one interest rate period, divide the late period into the number of days in each of the interest rate periods identified in the “Computing Penalty and Interest” section in Form 4907, and apply the calculations in the Overdue Tax Interest worksheet separately to each portion of the late period. Combine these interest subtotals and carry the total to Form 4908, line 30. PART 3: REFUND OR CREDIT FORWARD Line 32: If the amount of the overpayment, less any penalty and interest due on lines 28, 29 and 30 is less than zero, enter the difference (as a positive number) on line 31. NOTE: If an overpayment exists, a taxpayer must elect a refund of all or a portion of the amount and/or designate all or a portion of the overpayment to be used as an estimate for the next CIT tax year. Complete lines 33 and 34 as applicable. Line 33: If the taxpayer anticipates a CIT liability in the filing period subsequent to this return, some or all of any overpayment from line 32 may be credited forward to the next tax year as an estimated payment. Enter the desired amount to use as an estimate for the next CIT tax year. Line 34: Enter the amount of refund requested. Reminder: Taxpayers must sign and date returns.

NOTE: This is not the primary return. It is designed to support the CIT Annual Return for Financial Institutions (Form 4908) submitted on behalf of the UBG by the Designated Member (DM). Even if there is only one financial institution member in a UBG, that member must file this form in support of its Form 4908. See “Filing Procedures for UBGs” later in these instructions for guidance. General Information About UBGs in CIT Unitary Business Group means a group of United States persons that are corporations, insurance companies, or financial institutions, other than a foreign operating entity, that satisfies the control test and relationship test. If an Affiliated Group Election is made (see instructions for Form 4891), the UBG also includes all members of the affiliated group, as defined in Internal Revenue Code (IRC) § 1504(1) except that the group includes only US persons (no foreign persons or foreign operating entities) that are corporations, financial institutions or insurance companies that satisfy the control test and have made the election to file as a UBG. Once the election is made, the Affiliated Group is treated as a UBG for all purposes. United States person is defined in IRC § 7701(a)(30). A foreign operating entity means a United States corporation that would otherwise be a part of a UBG that is taxable in Michigan; has substantial operations outside the United States, the District of Columbia, any territory or possession of the United States except for the commonwealth of Puerto Rico, or a political subdivision of the foregoing; and at least 80 percent of its income is active foreign business income as defined in IRC § 871(l)(1)(B)(ii).

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.
