Governor Announces State Tax Deadline Extended

Michigan Governor Whitmer Extends The State Tax Deadline To July 15, 2020



Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer has signed an executive order (eo-2020-26) that will extend the state tax filing and payment deadline amid the coronavirus pandemic from April 15, 2020 to July 15, 2020. This decision comes over a week after the IRS pushed back the federal tax filing deadline to July 15, 2020, and the state of Michigan has now committed to follow suit allowing residents and businesses additional time to file their income taxes.


Over the last few weeks, the MICPA Government Relations team has worked diligently to provide support, direction and advice to the Governor, Chief Policy Director, Chief Deputy Treasurer, Senate Majority Leader and the House Majority Leader to achieve taxpayer relief for filing and payment.
