State income tax refunds must be claimed within four years

LANSING, Mich. Michigan taxpayers who missed the July 15 state individual income tax filing deadline have options for filing a late return, according to the Michigan Department of Treasury.

“Taxpayers who missed last week’s individual income tax filing deadline have options,” State Treasurer Rachael Eubanks said. “If you have an outstanding tax debt and cannot make full payment, we will work with you on payment options. Our goal is to help taxpayers limit interest charges and late payment penalties.”

Treasury recommends past-due tax filers to consider:

  • Filing a return to claim an outstanding refund. Taxpayers risk losing their state income tax refund if they don’t file a return within four years from the due date of the original return. Go to www.michigan.gov/mifastfile to learn more about e-filing.
  • Filing a return to avoid interest and penalties. File past due returns and pay now to limit interest charges and late payment penalties. Failure to pay could affect a taxpayer’s credit score and the ability to obtain loans.
  • Paying as much tax as possible. If taxpayers have to pay outstanding taxes but can’t pay in full, they should pay as much as they can when they file their tax returns. Payments can be made using Michigan’s e-Payments service. When mailing checks, carefully follow tax form instructions. Treasury will work with taxpayers who cannot pay the full amount of tax they owe.

Taxpayers who receive a final tax bill and are unable to pay the entire amount owed can consider:

  • Requesting a penalty waiver. Penalty may be waived on an assessment if a taxpayer can show reasonable cause for their failure to pay on time. Reasonable cause includes serious illness, a fire or natural disaster, or criminal acts against you. Documentation should be submitted to substantiate the reason for a penalty waiver request.
  • Making monthly payments through an installment agreement. For Installment Agreements lasting for 24 months or less, taxpayers must complete, sign and return the Installment Agreement (Form 990). The agreement requires a proposed payment amount that will be reviewed for approval by Treasury.
  • Filing an Offer in Compromise application. An Offer in Compromise is a request by a taxpayer for the Michigan Department of Treasury to compromise an assessed tax liability for less than the full amount. For more information or an application, visit www.michigan.gov/oic.

The last three options for final tax bills should be filed separately from the state income tax return.

To learn more about Michigan’s income tax, go to www.michigan.gov/incometax or call Treasury’s Income Tax Information Line at 517-636-4486. Taxpayer inquires can also be made online.

All taxpayers should know the telltale signs of common tax scams

Every year scammers add new twists to well-known tax-related scams and 2020 is no exception.

Taxpayers should remember that the IRS generally first mails a bill to a taxpayer who owes taxes. There are special circumstances when the IRS will call or come to a home or business.

Here are some tips to help taxpayers spot scams and avoid becoming a victim.

Email phishing scams

  • The IRS does not initiate contact with taxpayers by email to request personal or financial information.
  • For ways to avoid these scams read tips from the Department of Homeland Security.
  • For additional tips, check out Taxes. Security. Together.
  • Taxpayers should report IRS, Treasury or tax-related suspicious online or email phishing scams to phishing@irs.gov. They should not open any attachments, click on any links, reply to the sender or take any other actions that could put them at risk.

Phone scams

The IRS and its authorized private collection agencies will never:

  • Leave pre-recorded, urgent or threatening messages.
  • Threaten to immediately bring in local police or other law-enforcement groups to have the taxpayer arrested for not paying, deported or revoke their licenses.
  • Call to demand immediate payment using a specific payment method such as a prepaid debit card, gift card or wire transfer. The agency doesn’t use these methods for tax payments.
  • Ask for checks to third parties. The agency has specific instructions on how to pay taxes.
  • Demand that taxes be paid without giving the taxpayer the opportunity to question or appeal the amount owed.

Criminals can fake or spoof caller ID numbers to appear to be anywhere in the country. Scammers can even spoof an IRS office phone number or the numbers of various local, state, federal or tribal government agencies.
If a taxpayer receives an IRS or Treasury-related phone call, but doesn’t owe taxes and has no reason to think they do, they should:

  • Hang up immediately.
  • Contact the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration to report the call.
  • Report the caller ID and callback number to the IRS by sending it to phishing@irs.gov. The subject line should include IRS Phone Scam.
  • Report the call to the Federal Trade Commission.

If a taxpayer owes tax or thinks they do, they should:

  • View tax account information online at IRS.gov to see the actual amount owed.
  • Review their payment options.
  • Call the number on any billing notice they receive or call the IRS at 800-829-1040.

Mobile home park donates to help feed kids

Cedar Springs Mobile Estates donated $1,000 to Cedar Springs Public Schools to help with their summer food program. From left to right: Chris LaHaie, Chief Financial Officer at CS Public Schools; Scott Smith, Superintendent; Caitlin Marvin, manager at Cedar Springs Mobile Estates; and Matt Blood, Human and Community Services Director at CS Public Schools.

Makes other improvements

Cedar Springs Mobile Estates, located near the intersection of 18 Mile and N. Main Street, donated $1,000 to Cedar Springs Public Schools earlier this week to help the school with their summer food program.

But, according to Caitlin Marvin, property manager at the park, that’s just one of the things that they’ve done to help boost their image and make the place a better place to live for residents. “Our park has completely changed over the past few years. Our community has grown so much. We have such wonderful people here and we couldn’t be happier to where our community is heading. The managers here have worked their tails off to get where we are today!” she said.

The CSME is owned by Suzie Becker and run by her son Justin and daughter Stephanie. The improvements they’ve made are aesthetic, social and financial.

Improvements you can see include putting in 17 new homes since 2018; they are also upgrading their office along with the homes in the park, new roof, new sign, and landscaping. They are also putting in a garden for their community. 

“The garden is going to be at the Carol circle,” explained Marvin. “We are starting with benches and picnic tables, flower beds etc. We are planning on building raised garden beds to plant veggies and fruits for the people in our community. We will provide the seeds/plants each year and all residents are welcome to help Ranee and I tend the garden.” 

They are also helping residents financially. Marvin said they have been selling homes to the residents as opposed to just leasing. “If they purchase, their payments go down dramatically,” she said. They also do the financing for them.

They have also helped residents during the COVID-19 pandemic. Marvin noted that they have bought food and gift cards for residents to make sure no one goes hungry; and they have gotten residents help with rent and utilities. They also scour the internet for jobs and send that out to the residents to help them in their job search.

And it’s not just the park management helping residents. The residents in the park step up to help each other as well. “Our community has been wonderful to each other, especially through this pandemic. “They have been helping each other with meals and groceries, checking in on one another, and helping keep yards clean and mowed for one another,” explained Marvin. 

Why the donation to the school? “We are trying to partner with other organizations such as the school to help not only our residents but the community of Cedar Springs as well. I believe being a bigger part in Cedar Springs is definitely helping set our standards higher and higher. We are proud of our progress and we want others to be proud to have Cedar Springs Mobile Estates in their town.”

Michigan Small Business Restart Program now live

LANSING, MICH. Michigan’s small businesses and nonprofits working to recover from the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 virus can now apply for grants of up to $20,000 through the Michigan Small Business Restart Program, the Michigan Economic Development Corporation announced today. The program will provide $100 million in economic assistance to Michigan’s small businesses and nonprofits and in turn, help support workers and their families facing economic uncertainty during the outbreak. Information on how to apply, as well as eligibility criteria and program guidelines are available at michiganbusiness.org/restart.

“The Michigan Small Business Restart Program puts federal funding to work for small businesses in Michigan hardest hit by the impact of COVID-19, helping to ensure they can keep their doors open and put critical protections in place for their workers and their customers,” said Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. “Families across the state depend on small businesses for their livelihood, and this program will build on additional COVID-19 business relief efforts offered by the MEDC to create a strong foundation for Michigan’s long-term economic recovery.”

Approved by the Michigan Strategic Fund on July 7, the Michigan Small Business Restart Program allocates $100 million of federal CARES Act funding to provide support to Michigan’s small businesses and nonprofits that are reopening and have experienced a loss of income as a result of the COVID-19 crisis. The funding will be distributed across 15 local or nonprofit economic development organizations (EDOs) covering all 83 counties in the state for grants up to $20,000 to support certain small businesses and nonprofits that have realized a significant financial hardship as a result of the COVID-19 virus.

The Michigan Small Business Restart Program application period will be live through Wednesday, August 5 at michiganbusiness.org/restart and all applications received during that three week period will receive consideration; grants will be awarded after the close of the application period based on criteria that are defined by the EDOs. Funds can be used as working capital to support payroll expenses, rent, mortgage payments, utility expenses or other similar expenses.

The MEDC anticipates that more than 5,000 businesses across the state will benefit from this program.

To qualify for grant support, businesses must meet the following criteria, based on statutory requirements for the program:

  • Is a business or nonprofit with fewer than 50 employees that can demonstrate it is affected by the COVID-19 emergency
  • Needs working capital to support eligible expenses
  • Demonstrates an income loss as a result of the COVID-19 emergency

Additionally, at least 30 percent of the funds awarded under the program must be provided to women-owned, mianority-owned or veteran-owned eligible businesses.

“We have taken this program from words on a page to full deployment in two weeks to ensure we can start getting these funds into the hands of small businesses and nonprofits across Michigan and continue to set a path to economic recovery here in our state,” said MEDC CEO Mark A. Burton. “The Michigan Small Business Restart program will provide a significant opportunity to address immediate needs of small businesses and nonprofits negatively impacted by COVID-19. Combined with other MSF programs and services, as well as local and federal economic development support, we can help ensure small businesses throughout the state to recover from the short and long-term impacts of the COVID-19 outbreak.”

Per statutory requirements, a monthly report will be provided to the legislature that includes a listing of grants awarded in the previous month and the name of the recipient of each grant provided under the program. All reporting forms will also be available on michiganbusiness.org/restart.

Paola Mendivil, co-owner of El Granjero Mexican Grill in Grand Rapids and advocate for Latina women, said she was pleased to learn that at least 30 percent of the Michigan Small Business Restart funds will be awarded to women-owned, minority-owned or veteran-owned eligible businesses. “Small businesses all around Michigan have been hit hard by the COVID-19 virus, but women- and minority-owned businesses are often even more vulnerable in difficult times,” said Mendivil, who is also an active member of Local First, the West Michigan Sustainable Business Forum, and the Latina Network of West Michigan. “This funding could prove to be a lifeline for so many of these small businesses in the state. It’s important we continue to raise awareness and encourage these businesses to apply for these Restart Grants.”

The Michigan Small Business Restart Program is modeled after the Michigan Small Business Relief Program, approved on March 19 by the Michigan Strategic Fund to support small businesses impacted by the COVID-19 crisis.

The Michigan Small Business Relief Program consisted of a total of $20 million aimed at supporting businesses in need of immediate relief. The program included $10 million that was distributed to 15 local EDOs to provide grants up to $10,000 to certain small businesses impacted by COVID-19. Additionally, the program authorized $10 million for small business loans of not less than $50,000 and not more than $100,000 to eligible borrowers impacted by COVID-19 that were not able to seek alternative, suitable financing.

Under the Michigan Small Business Relief grant program, local EDOs selected more than 2,700 businesses across the state covering all 83 counties that received grant support expected to retain approximately 11,000 jobs. To date, more than 130 small business loans totaling more than $8 million have been approved through MSF delegated approval.

The $15 million Michigan Agricultural Safety Grant Program application process is also now live and can be found at michiganbusiness.org/agsafety. The program will support the implementation of COVID-19 monitoring and mitigation strategies to protect agricultural employees and the state’s overall food production industry, including PPE, testing, employee training and housing needs to ensure appropriate social distancing.

With the approval of these two programs by the MSF Board, the MEDC has launched 17 COVID-19 relief and recovery programs supporting more than 3,400 businesses in the state and helping to retain more than 14,700 jobs across all 83 counties. To learn more about MEDC’s COVID-19 response programs and the impact they are having on economic recovery efforts, visit michiganbusiness.org/covid19response. Other resources for economic reopening efforts as well as businesses across Michigan struggling with economic losses as a result of the COVID-19 virus can be found online at michiganbusiness.org/covid19.

The MEDC has also developed a FAQ for Michigan businesses and communities at michiganbusiness.org/covid19-faq.

Florida-based company misled Michigan small businesses on “good standing” certificate

About 2,500 businesses eligible for full refunds will be notified

LANSING—Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel and the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) announced this week that small businesses across Michigan are entitled to a refund under a recent settlement reached with the Florida-based CA Certificate Service LLC, doing business as MI Certificate Service.

A lawsuit filed last year alleged the company sent a form intentionally designed to resemble an official state document to new Michigan businesses. The form requested an immediate response and a check for $72.50 to complete the process of obtaining a Michigan Certificate of Good Standing. A Certificate of Good Standing is an optional form that, if needed, can be obtained directly from the state for $10. The lawsuit alleged that these mailings constituted fraudulent misrepresentation, nuisance and that the company was not authorized to do business in Michigan.

“I appreciate the collaborative effort of my assistant attorneys general and the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs in reaching this settlement,” Nessel said. “The State will not tolerate attempts to intentionally mislead Michigan businesses or residents, and my office will hold those who try accountable for their deceptive practices.”

“Be diligent when reviewing mailings that may look official and offer help in performing services that are either not required, do not exist or both,” said LARA Director Orlene Hawks. “In partnership with Attorney General Dana Nessel’s office, we were able to hold this company responsible for violating the law.”

The settlement includes an agreement by CA Certificate Service LLC to permanently cease sending solicitations to entities or individuals in Michigan. The company also agreed to pay $5,000 to the Attorney General’s office, and to pay full refunds to impacted businesses that make such a request within the next six months.

About 2,500 businesses will be eligible for a full refund of $72.50. Eligible businesses have already been identified and will receive direct notice. Refund requests may be submitted to 888-842-9265.

The Attorney General’s office and LARA frequently receive complaints from businesses about mailings designed to look like either an official government form or an invoice for services already rendered, when in fact the mailing is a solicitation seeking new business. Many of these mailings hide text that indicate the form is not required, but not all do.

Businesses should be cautious if they receive any requests or bills they do not recognize and can contact LARA if they have questions about forming a business. Additional information is available on the Corporations Division website [ https://www.michigan.gov/lara/0,4601,7-154-89334_61343_35413—,00.html ] or by calling the Corporations Division at 517-241-6470.

How to report nonemployee compensation and backup withholding

There is a new Form 1099-NEC, Nonemployee Compensation for business taxpayers who pay or receive nonemployee compensation.

Starting in tax year 2020, payers must complete this form to report any payment of $600 or more to a payee.

Generally, payers must file Form 1099-NEC by January 31. For 2020 tax returns, the due date is February 1, 2021. There is no automatic 30-day extension to file Form 1099-NEC. However, an extension to file may be available under certain hardship conditions.

Nonemployee compensation may be subject to backup withholding if a payee has not provided a taxpayer identification number to the payer or the IRS notifies the payer that the TIN provided was incorrect.

A TIN can be one of the following numbers:

  • Social Security
  • Employer identification
  • Individual taxpayer identification
  • Adoption taxpayer identification

What is backup withholding?

Backup withholding can apply to most kinds of payments reported on Forms 1099 and W-2G. This means that the person or business paying the taxpayer doesn’t generally withhold taxes from certain payments. There are, however, situations when the payer is required to withhold a certain percentage of tax to make sure the IRS receives the tax due on this income. This is backup withholding.

The tax filing deadline has been postponed to Wednesday, July 15, 2020. The IRS is processing tax returns, issuing refunds and accepting payments. Taxpayers who mailed a tax return will experience a longer wait. There is no need to mail a second tax return or call the IRS.

Here are reasons people should file a 2019 tax return

Economic Impact Payment, tax credits available for some

While many people are required to file a tax return, it’s a good idea for everyone to determine if they should file. Some people with low income are not required to file but will need to do so to get a tax refund.

The Interactive Tax Assistant Do I Need to File a Tax Return? will help determine if an individual is required to file a federal tax return or should file to receive a refund.

Here are five things to consider when determining whether to file a 2019 tax return, including possibly being eligible for an Economic Impact Payment.

Tax withheld or paid – Did the taxpayer’s employer withhold federal income tax from their pay in 2019? Did the taxpayer make estimated tax payments? Did they get a refund last year, and have it applied to 2019 tax? If a taxpayer answers yes to any of these questions, they may be owed a refund. To receive the refund, they must file a 2019 tax return.

Earned income tax credit – This is a tax credit for low- to moderate-income wage earners. It is a refundable tax credit, and the amount depends on the taxpayer’s income and number of children. The credit doesn’t just reduce the amount of tax owed but could also result in a refund. However, once again, to claim the EITC, a taxpayer must file a return. Taxpayers can use the EITC Assistant to determine if they qualify for this credit.

Child tax credit – Taxpayers can claim this credit if they have a qualifying child under the age of 17 and meet other qualifications. The maximum amount per qualifying child is $2,000. Up to $1,400 of that amount can be refundable for each qualifying child. So, like the EITC, the Child Tax Credit can give a taxpayer a refund even if they owe no tax.
The IRS Interactive Tax Assistant Is My Child a Qualifying Child for the Child Tax Credit? helps taxpayers determine if a child is a qualifying child.

Taxpayers with dependents who don’t qualify for the child tax credit may be able to claim the credit for other dependents. The maximum credit amount is $500 for each dependent who meets certain conditions. Find out more by reading Publication 972, Child Tax Credit and Credit for Other Dependents.

American opportunity or lifetime earning credits – Two credits can help taxpayers paying higher education costs for themselves, a spouse or dependent. Even if the taxpayer doesn’t owe any taxes, they may still qualify. They can complete Form 8863, Education Credits and file it with the tax return. The Interactive Tax Assistant – Am I Eligible to Claim an Education Credit? can help taxpayers figure out if are eligible for an education credit.

If taxpayers do not qualify for the either of these credits may benefit from the Tuition and Fees Deduction. For details about this deduction, see Publication 970, Tax Benefits for Education.

Economic Impact Payment – Individuals who aren’t required to file a tax return may still be eligible for an Economic Impact Payment of $1,200 or $2,400 if they filed married filing jointly. People who meet the EIP eligibility requirements, have a filing requirement or can claim a refund should file a 2019 tax return. If they have not filed a 2019 and 2018 tax return, the IRS will use their information from the 2019 tax return to calculate their Economic Impact Payment. Those who don’t have to file should use the Non-Filers: Enter Payment Info Here tool by Oct. 15 to provide simple information so to get their payment.

The tax filing deadline has been postponed to Wednesday, July 15, 2020. The IRS is processing tax returns, issuing refunds and accepting payments. Taxpayers who mailed a tax return will experience a longer wait. There is no need to mail a second tax return or call the IRS.

IRS: July 15 tax payment deadline approaching

Plan on scheduling multiple payments now

WASHINGTON ― As the 2019 tax filing and payment deadline approaches, the IRS reminds taxpayers and businesses that 2019 income tax liabilities as well as postponed April 15 and June 15, 2020 estimated tax payments are due July 15, 2020.  This postponement provided temporary tax relief in response to the COVID 19 pandemic.

Taxpayers who owe a 2019 income tax liability, as well as estimated tax for 2020, must make two separate payments on or by July 15, 2020: One for their 2019 income tax liability and one for their 2020 estimated tax payments.  The two estimated tax payments can be combined into a single payment. 

A list of forms due July 15 is on the Coronavirus Tax Relief: Filing and Payment Deadlines page. Electronic payment options are the optimal way to make a tax payment.

Paying electronically:

Individuals – Taxpayers can use Direct Pay for two payments each day. Direct Pay allows taxpayers to pay online directly from a checking or savings account for free, and to schedule payments up to 365 days in advance. They will receive an email confirmation of their payments.

Taxpayers attempting to make at least three payments on the same day using Direct Pay will receive a warning of possible duplicate payment, and they will need to select override for those payments to continue.

Businesses – For businesses or those making large payments, the best payment option is the Electronic Federal Tax Payment System, which allows up to five payments per day. Enrollment is required. Taxpayers can schedule payments up to 365 days in advance and opt in to receive email notifications about their payments. Visit IRS.gov/EFTPS for details. 

Paying by check, money order or cashier’s check:

2019 Tax Liability – If paying a 2019 income tax liability without an accompanying 2019 tax return, taxpayers paying by check, money order or cashier’s check should include Form 1040-V, Payment Voucher with the payment.

For those paying when filing their 2019 income tax return, do not staple or paperclip the payment to the return. For more information, go to Pay by Check or Money Order on IRS.gov.

2020 Estimated Tax Payments – Taxpayers making their 2020 estimated tax payment by check, money order or cashier’s check should include the appropriate Form 1040 ES payment voucher. Indicate on the check memo line that this is a 2020 estimated tax payment.

Additional electronic payment options:

Payment options are available at IRS.gov/payments:

Taxpayers can pay when they file electronically using tax software online. If using a tax preparer, ask the preparer to make the tax payment through an electronic funds withdrawal from a bank account.

Taxpayers can choose to pay with a credit card, debit card or digital wallet option through a payment processor. Processing fees apply. No part of the card service fee goes to the IRS.

The IRS2Go app provides mobile-friendly payment options, including Direct Pay and Payment Provider payments on mobile devices.

Individuals and businesses, preferring to pay in cash, can do so at a participating retail store. Go to IRS.gov/paywithcash for instructions.

For taxpayers paying separately from when they file their tax return, the more secure and quicker way to send a payment to the IRS is by going to IRS.gov/payments and choosing an electronic payment option to submit the payment. Taxpayers should continue to use electronic options to support social distancing and speed the processing of tax returns, refunds and payments.

Reviewing federal tax information online

Individual taxpayers can go to IRS.gov/account to securely access information about their federal tax account. They can view the amount they owe, access their tax records online, review their payment history and view key tax return information for the most recent tax return as originally filed.

Posted in Tax TimeComments Off on IRS: July 15 tax payment deadline approaching

Keep Economic Impact Payment notice with other tax records

People who receive an Economic Impact Payment this year should keep Notice 1444, Your Economic Impact Payment, with their tax records. This notice provides information about the amount of their payment, how the payment was made and how to report any payment that wasn’t received.

For security reasons, the IRS mails this notice to each recipient’s last known address within 15 days after the payment goes out. It’s especially important for people to keep this notice if they think their payment amount is wrong. When they file their 2020 tax return, they can refer to Notice 1444 and claim additional credits, if they are eligible for them.

Taxpayers should keep this notice filed with all their other important tax records. These include, W-2s from employers,1099s from banks and other payers, other income documents and virtual currency transaction records.

All taxpayers should keep a copy of their past tax returns and supporting documents for at least three years. Key information from their prior year return may be required to file next year. Life changes like employment or marital status and financial gains or losses can affect a tax refund or the amount of taxes a person may owe.

The tax filing deadline has been postponed to Wednesday, July 15, 2020. The IRS is processing tax returns, issuing refunds and accepting payments. Taxpayers who mailed a tax return will experience a longer wait. There is no need to mail a second tax return or call the IRS.

Businesses benefit from farmers market and novelty food event

During the weekend of June 5, the Village of Sand Lake became the intersection between novelty foods, a farmer’s market and community give back. 

Big Red’s BBQ, based out of Howard City, was on hand to dish up great smells and awesome grilled dishes; the farmer’s market vendors offered honey, fresh produce, flowers, and clothing; and Big Mike’s Kettle Corn served amazing kettle corn and fresh squeezed lemonade.  

The Sand Lake Trading Company was one of several businesses benefitting from the community give back. Courtesy photo.

At a time in America when finances are shaky and business owners are suffering, the Village of Sand Lake partnered with Big Red’s BBQ for the community give back event.  Big Red’s BBQ donated 10 percent of its weekend profits to the Village of Sand Lake.  In turn, the Village of Sand Lake gave the entire $600 back to local businesses, who suffered during the COVID19 pandemic.  

“We had seven businesses that were directly impacted, either through mandated closure or through ‘carry out’ only,” said Village President Tracy Quinlan.

The Village of Sand Lake intends to expand on community give back by bringing food trucks to the first annual Food Cruise, July 10–12, 2020, hosted by the Village and the Sand Lake Chamber of Commerce. 

“We are super excited about doing some new things this year!” remarked Quinlan.

“If you have a food truck or know of someone who does, please contact the Village of Sand Lake for an application. You will get some great exposure to your business while serving up delightful cuisine. Please plan on attending the Food Cruise!”

The farmer’s market, open every Friday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., is looking for vendors.  Currently, the vendor spaces are free. Come enjoy local tastes and support local farmers and artisans. Please send an email to:  bfeenstra@grar.com, if you are interested in providing home-grown flavors.
