Our W2 Mate software complies with the state of Michigan W2 electronic filing requirements. You can simply use our software to generate the magnetic media and mail it to the state.
The Michigan Department of Treasury requires employers with 250 or more Michigan employees to file MI-W-2 information on cartridge or CD. Smaller employers are encouraged to use electronic filing, but may file using the state copy of the federal W-2. W-2 reports are due February 28. Late filing is subject to penalty as provided under the Revenue Act.
Whether you are filing Michigan W2s on paper or electronically you can use our software.
If you are required to file on magnetic media, you do not need to apply in advance or submit test media. You must send Form 447, Transmittal for Magnetic Media Reporting of W-2s, W-2Gs, and 1099s to the State of Michigan with your magnetic media. If Form 447 is not completed and included with your media, your media may be rejected and returned to you unprocessed.
You need to label the W2 Media you send to the state as follows:
(1) Business Name.
(2) EIN: federal employer identification number.
(3) Type of document represented: W2.
(4) Tax Year: 2011 , 2012 , 2013 and so on.
(5) Number of employees.
(6) Density, recording mode, record size and blocking factor if you file with a cartridge.
You are invited to try our W2 Mate software and see for yourself how easy W2 and 1099 electronic filing can be.
