TaxGarden Supported MI Tax Forms and Worksheets

Currently we don't support State Tax Services.

MI-1040

This is the main form that is used to file Michigan Individual Tax Return if a taxpayer owes tax, has a refund to claim. Taxpayers must use this form to file a Michigan return if they file a federal return, even if they do not owe Michigan Tax. When a taxpayer is claimed as a dependent and the taxpayer’s AGI is $1,500 or less if single or married, filing separately or $3,000 or less if filing a joint return, they don’t have to file a return unless they are claiming a refund.

Schedule W:

When Taxpayers had Michigan income tax withheld during the tax year, the taxpayer must complete this Withholding Tax Schedule (Schedule W) to report the withholding on their Individual Income Tax Return. If a Taxpayer does not attach Schedule W when required, the processing of the return will be delayed. Therefore attaching this form along with the main form enables efficient handling of individual income tax return. There is no need to attach Form W2 or Form 1099.
