Michigan Tax Webinar

Thursday, March 18, 2021

Representatives from the Michigan Department of the Treasury will explain the State of Michigan tax form to international students and scholars. This webinar is specifically designed for F-1 and J-1 international students and scholars. It will not help permanent residents or U.S. citizens.

Since your Michigan tax form uses information from specific parts of your federal tax form, it is important to prepare your federal tax form before the webinar and have it available so you can follow the webinar.
