Michigan taxpayers hit by summer storms have days left to file ’23 returns

  • The income tax extension expires June 17 for Michigan filers hit by storms
  • The IRS extended the deadline for nine counties in that FEMA designated disaster areas 
  • It’s still possible to request even more time but taxpayers would have to pay any taxes due by June 17

The deadline is approaching for Michigan taxpayers who were impacted by severe weather last August to file their individual and business tax returns as well as make any payments. 


People who live or operate businesses in Eaton, Ingham, Ionia, Kent, Livingston, Macomb, Monroe, Oakland and Wayne counties have until Monday, June 17 to file their 2023 tax returns, which normally would have been due in April. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) designated those counties disaster areas following heavy thunderstorms, tornadoes and flooding that began Aug. 24. 

The filing extension also applies to state tax returns. 

As of Monday, FEMA had approved about $403 million in relief for individuals and households affected by the disaster. More than 115,000 individuals applied for assistance.  

Taxpayers who fail to meet the filing deadline may face interest and penalties that will begin to accrue on June 18. Those who need still more time to file can submit a request on paper for an extension that will give them until Oct. 15, but they still must pay any taxes they owe by June 17.
