Business taxpayers reminded about wage statement due date

Business taxpayers are reminded that they must submit their wage statements — such as W-2, W-2G, 1099-R and 1099-MISC — to the Michigan Department of Treasury on or before Jan. 31, 2020.

Business taxpayers may electronically upload their wage statements by using Michigan Treasury Online (MTO). Employers with more than 250 employees must file their wage statements electronically.

While the wage statements are due on or before Jan. 31, 2020, the Sales, Use and Withholding Taxes Annual Return (Form 5081) is still due on Feb. 28, 2020. Wage statements filed on or before the Jan. 31 due date need not be submitted again with Form 5081.

“Business taxpayers should keep these deadlines in mind when submitting wage statements and filing returns,” said State Deputy Treasurer Glenn White, who oversees Treasury’s Tax Administration programs. “If deadlines are missed, there could be processing delays and penalties applied.”

Public Act 118 of 2018 made the state’s wage statement deadline the same as Internal Revenue Service.
