MICHIGAN EZ INCOME TAX INSTRUCTIONS

GENERAL INFORMATION

Who can file the EZ form

You can file an EZ form if ALL of the following are true:

You filed a U.S. 1040EZ.

Your filing status is single or married filing jointly.

Single. Your status is single if you are widowed, not married, or if you are legally divorced or separated under court order. Married filing jointly. You may use this filing status if you were married as of December 31, 1997, or your spouse died in 1997 and you did not remarry in 1997, or your spouse died in 1998 before filing a 1997 return.

You do not have any dependents.

You were a Michigan resident for all of 1997.

You do not have any income from military pay, pensions, other states’ obligations or U.S. obligations.

You are not age 65 or older, deaf, blind, hemiplegic, paraple- gic, quadriplegic or totally and permanently disabled.

You did not make any estimated tax payments.

You are not eligible for any of the tax credits listed in the next column.

Before you choose the EZ form, be sure you are not able to

claim a credit for any of the following:

property taxes and/or rent paid

farmland preservation

college tuition and fees

public contributions

community foundations

homeless shelter/food bank

income tax paid to government units outside Michigan.

All these credits reduce the tax you owe. If you are eligible for any of these credits and you file an EZ form, you will pay more tax than you owe.

When to file

Your return must be postmarked no later than April 15, 1998. Late payments will be charged a monthly penalty of 5 percent of the tax due (minimum $10, maximum 50 percent of the tax), and monthly interest at 1 percent above the prime rate.

Lines not listed are explained on the form.

Lines 2 & 3: Write your Social Security number(s) here even if using your label.

Line 4: See instructions on pages 41 - 42.

Line 5: These funds are distributed among all candidates for governor who meet the campaign fund qualifications, regardless of political party. If you choose yes, it will not raise your tax or reduce your refund.

Line 6: If single and AGI is less than $1,500 or married filing jointly and AGI is less than $3,000 and Michigan tax is withheld, enter 0 on line 12 and complete lines 7, and 13 through 19. If Michigan tax is not withheld, you do not need to file this form.

Lines 11a and 11b: On line 11a, enter the total amount of city income tax withheld as shown on your W-2 form and any city income tax paid in 1997, less city income tax refund(s) received in 1997. Use the City Income Tax Credit Worksheet on this page to figure the amount of credit allowable for the amount of city income tax you paid. Enter your credit on line 11b.

Lines 13 and 14: You may contribute any amount to one or both of these funds, whether you owe tax or are due a refund. For a full explanation of these funds, see page 9 of the income tax instruction book. Your donation will increase your tax or reduce your refund.
