LANSING, Mich. — Income tax returns and payments for all state and city income tax, usually due on April 15 for state and April 30 for cities, are now due July 15 for state taxes and July 30 for cities. Gov. Gretchen Whitmer signed an order to that effect Monday.

The Internal Revenue Service has already reset deadlines for federal returns and payments to July 15.

“Taxpayers now have more time to file their state and city income taxes. However, if you are entitled to a refund, please don’t wait to file your taxes so you can receive that refund,” said Michigan Treasurer Rachael Eubanks in a release.

The majority of filers in the state do so electronically. Options to do so, either free or for a fee, are available at a Michigan Treasury web page.

The state’s tax information hotline is not available due to the governor’s stay-at-home executive order, but some online services are available as part of the Treasury Department’s self-service website.
