Instructions for Schedule W
Withholding Tax Schedule
Schedule W is designed to report State of Michigan income
tax withholding. Schedule W enables us to process your
individual income tax return more eciently.
Include the completed Schedule W with your return. An
attachment number is listed in the upper right corner to help
you assemble your forms in the correct order behind your
Individual Income Tax Return (MI-1040).
If a Schedule W is not included when required, the
processing of your return will be delayed. Do not submit
W-2 and/or 1099 forms with your return.
If you are ling an amended return because you received
a corrected W-2 you must complete a Schedule W. Keep
copies of your W-2s with your tax records for six years
and have them available if requested by the Department of
Michigan Residents. If you paid income tax to a
governmental unit outside of Michigan, see instructions for
MI-1040, line 18.
