If you fail or refuse to submit this certificate, your employer must withhold tax from your compensation without allowance for any exemptions. Your employer is required to notify the Michigan Department of Treasury if you have claimed 10 or more personal or dependency exemptions or claimed that you are exempt from withholding. You MUST provide a new MI-W4 to your employer within 10 days if your residency status changes or if your exemptions decrease because: a) your spouse, for whom you have been claiming an exemption, is divorced or legally separated from you or claims his/her own exemption(s) on a separate certificate, or b) a dependent no longer qualifies under the Internal Revenue Code. Line 5: If you check “Yes,” enter your date of hire. Line 6: Personal and dependency exemptions. The number of exemptions claimed here may not exceed the number of exemptions you are entitled to claim on a Michigan Individual Income Tax Return (Form MI-1040). Dependents include qualifying children and qualifying relatives under the Internal Revenue Code, even if your AGI exceeds the limits to claim federal tax credits for them. Do not claim the same exemptions more than once or tax will be under-withheld. Specifically, do not claim: • Your personal exemption if someone else will claim you as their dependent. • Your personal exemption with more than one employer at a time. • Your spouse’s personal exemption if they claim it with their employer. • Your dependency exemptions if someone else (for example, your spouse) is claiming them with their employer. Line 7: You may designate additional withholding if you expect to owe more than the amount withheld. Line 8a: You may claim exemption from Michigan income tax withholding if all of the following conditions are met: i) Your employment is intermittent, temporary, or less than full time; ii) Your personal and dependency exemptions exceed your annual taxable compensation; iii) You claimed exemption from federal withholding; and iv) You did not incur a Michigan income tax liability for the previous year. Line 8b: Reasons wages might be exempt from withholding include: • You are a nonresident spouse of military personnel stationed in Michigan. • You are a resident of one of the following reciprocal states while working in Michigan: Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Minnesota, Ohio, or Wisconsin. • You are an enrolled member of a federallyrecognized tribe that does not have a tax agreement with the state of Michigan, you reside within that tribe’s Indian Country (as defined in 18 USC 1151), and compensation from this job will be earned within that Indian Country. Line 8c: For questions about Renaissance Zones, contact your local assessor’s office.

About the Individual Income Tax

The IRS and most states collect a personal income tax, which is paid throughout the year via tax withholding or estimated income tax payments.

Most taxpayers are required to file a yearly income tax return in April to both the Internal Revenue Service and their state's revenue department, which will result in either a tax refund of excess withheld income or a tax payment if the withholding does not cover the taxpayer's entire liability. Every taxpayer's situation is different - please consult a CPA or licensed tax preparer to ensure that you are filing the correct tax forms!
