According to 13 On Your Side, compounding the issue further are the delays encountered in processing tax returns associated with the Michigan Earned Income Tax Credit which stands at a notable 30%, and the Retirement Tax Rollback. These delays, exacerbated by the overwhelming volume of returns, have contributed to a backlog in processing particularly for returns filed before February 13th. As a result, taxpayers have experienced frustration and uncertainty regarding the status of their refunds, with many left waiting for extended periods without clarity on when they can expect resolution.

Despite the challenges faced by the Michigan Treasury Department, efforts to mitigate the delays are underway with approximately 531,000 tax returns processed as of last week. These processed returns have resulted in refunds totaling a substantial $338 million indicating progress in addressing the backlog. However, as the tax season progresses and the volume of returns continues to mount, the department faces the ongoing challenge of balancing efficiency with accuracy in order to expedite the resolution of taxpayers’ concerns and minimize disruptions to the filing process.
