Michigan taxpayers can submit their returns online or by mail before midnight on July 15.

Officials are encouraging individuals to file their tax returns online. Residents who file online typically receive their refund about two weeks after the state accepts the tax return.

Officials say taxpayers who need more time to file can request an extension to Oct. 15, 2020.
