Frequently Asked Questions
What is gross income? Flint Income Tax is imposed on gross income. If there is any question as to whether a specified source of income is taxable we suggest that you presume it is, in order to avoid probable penalty and interest assessments for non-withholding.
What if I do not include a payment with my return? Taxpayers who file a return timely but do not include payment with the return will be assessed penalty and interest up to the time the payment is made.
What is withholding? Any taxes withheld by an employer are held in trust. Consequently it is illegal to withhold any sum and not subsequently forward it to the Division of Taxation as required by law. Businesses must deposit withheld taxes monthly or quarterly, depending upon the amount withhold.
What are extensions? You may request more time to file your return by sending payment of your estimated annual liability to the City of Flint with a written request for an extension (up to 6 months) on or before the due date of your return.
An extension of time to file is not an extension of time to pay.
What is the City of Income Tax Rate and what type of Income is taxable? The Income Tax rate is one percent (1%) for residents and 1/2% for non-residents.
