Michigan municipalities have the option to review the 2019 personal property tax (PPT) reimbursement calculation, along with the millage rates and taxable values, to determine if there was a reporting or calculation error. These documents can be found on the Michigan Department of Treasury’s PPT reimbursement website.
Reimbursement correction process
If you don’t identify an error in the reporting or the calculation, no further action is necessary; municipalities don’t need to file a form to notify the Department of Treasury of their review.
However, if you do identify a reporting or calculation error, you’ll need to notify the Department of Treasury by submitting substantiating documentation, along with the appropriate form, by March 31, 2020. Depending on the type of error noted, the form may require review by the county equalization director in advance of submission to the Department of Treasury, which would require submission by Feb. 28, 2020. The correction forms can be found at the Department of Treasury’s PPT reimbursement website.
The State is advising you to contact the Revenue Sharing and Grants Division at TreasORTAPPT@michigan.gov or 517-335-7484 with any questions. You can also reach out to your Plante Moran advisor.
