ERC Eligibility for Michigan Businesses

Michicgan businesses must use qualified wages to apply for the ERC tax credit. To be eligible, businesses must not have over 100 employees for the 2020 tax year and over 500 for the 2021 tax year.


If your Michigan business experienced a decline in gross receipts over 50% or paid qualified wages to W-2 employees during the 2020 or 2021 tax year, you may be eligible to receive a credit.

Is ERC Taxable in Michigan?

Good news! The ERC refund is not considered taxable income in Michigan. However, the amount you earn from ERC will impact payroll deductions that you can claim. Businesses who earn over the amount they owed in taxes for the calendar year that they applied for will receive the rest as a refund. That refund can be used in any way the business chooses.
