Commencing in 2018, as enacted under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, Congress provided that deductions for state and local taxes are to be capped at $10,000 per married couple. Many high tax states such as California, New York, New Jersey and Connecticut have considered that this was inequitable to their residents, and have passed or are drafting legislation which would allow taxpayers to make payments to state or local municipal charitable organizations in exchange for credit against their real estate or state and local taxes.
Michigan's new Motor Fuel tax processing system, "Michigan Automated Tax System" (MiMATS) will begin July 30, 2018. With the implementation of the new system, paper returns will no longer be accepted. The last date to file in the current system will be July 20, 2018.
The Texas Tax Amnesty Program provides delinquent taxpayers with relief from penalties and interest. The Program runs from May 1 - June 29, 2018 and applies to tax periods prior to Jan. 1, 2018.
2018 Essential Services Assessment (ESA) statements have been generated and are now available to taxpayers via the Michigan Treasury Online (MTO). Statements are not transmitted or mailed to taxpayers. Through MTO, taxpayers can view the statement, view correspondence from Treasury, make changes to the statement, certify the statement, and pay the ESA liability.
The Texas Tax Amnesty Program will begin Tuesday, May 1, 2018. The program offers a limited opportunity to certain delinquent taxpayers to bring their tax accounts into compliance with state tax law without incurring penalties and interest on any amounts due to the state. Amnesty applies to tax periods prior to Jan. 1, 2018, and only includes those amounts that have not been previously reported to the Comptroller's office.
