Michigan Changes 1099, W-2 Filing Deadline to January 31

The State of Michigan recently passed a law (Public Act 118 of 2018) that requires wage statements such as Forms W-2, W-2G, 1099-R, and 1099-MISC to be submitted to the state on or before January 31, 2018. This change was made to match Michigan’s deadline to both that of the Michigan Department of Treasury’s and the IRS’s wage statement submission deadline. Employers with more than 250 employees must file their returns electronically. Per a press release by the Department of Treasury, wage statements filed on or before the January 31 due date do not need to be submitted again with Form 5081, as that form’s deadline remains February 28.
