Michigan Estimated Taxes

Tax Year 2012

 GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

WHO HAS TO FILE ESTIMATED TAXES?
In general, you must make estimated income tax payments if you expect to owe more than $500 when you file your 2012 MI-1040 return.

If you owe more than $500 you may not have to make estimated payments if you expect your 2012 withholding to be at least:
  •   90 percent of your total 2009 tax (qualified farmers, fishermen and seafarers use 66 2/3 percent),    
    •   100 percent of your 2008 taxes, or
    •   110 percent of your total 2008 tax if your 2008 adjusted gross income is more than $150,000 ($75,000 for married, filing separately).
  •   Total 2011 tax is the amount on your 2011 MI-1040, line 20, less the sum of your tax credits on lines 27, 28, 29, 30 and 31b. Estimated tax payments are not needed if two-thirds of your gross income is from farming, fishing or seafaring and you meet the qualifications.
