From KPMG TaxWatch
Beginning next year, pass-through entities will no longer be required to withhold Michigan income taxes. House Bill 5131, which was signed into law on June 8, 2016, eliminates the requirement for pass-through entities (such as S corporations, partnerships, limited partnerships, limited liability partnerships, and limited liability companies) to withhold taxes effective for tax years that begin on or after July 1, 2016.
Most partnerships will be subject to withholding for the entire 2016 tax year. Specifically, for tax years that began before July 1, 2016, pass-through entities generally must continue to withhold tax at the rate of 4.25 percent for each nonresident individual partner and 6.0 percent for each partner that is a corporation or pass-through entity. Please contact Dale Kim at 212-954-3920 or Mike Bozimowski at 313-230-3183 with questions on Michigan House Bill 5131.
