File Michigan form 5080/5081
What is the Michigan Form 5080/5081?
Form 5080/5081 are the quarterly and annual forms filed by businesses operating in Michigan. This form is unique to Michigan because it is actually a combined return, it includes payroll withholdings alongside sales tax reporting.
What is Gusto's Role in the filing of this form?
Because this form includes reporting of sales tax and this is information that Gusto does not have, we will file this form with only the withholding tax.
As a business operating in Michigan, what is my role in the filing of this form?
Since Gusto will only be reporting your payroll withholding (Box 8), you will need to file an additional paper Form 5080 / 5081 with the completed sales tax details for the amount of sales and use tax owed. If sales and use tax are not owed, enter zeros on this form for these amounts.
Because Gusto is reporting your payroll withholding tax, please keep Box 8 blank. Michigan will then be able to combine the sales and use tax amounts from your filed form with the payroll withholding amounts from the form filed by Gusto.
When does this form need to be filed and how do I file it?
The sales tax portion will need to be filed no later then the 20th of the month following the end of the quarter. If the 20th falls on a weekend or holiday, the due date will be the business day following the weekend or holiday.
