Q & A's Regarding the Resident Tribal Member (RTM) filings of the MI 1040 and the 4013

Definitions

  • Resident Tribal Member (RTM) - Those members (of a Tribe that has an implemented tax agreement with the State of Michigan) that are residing within their own Tribe's negotiated Agreement Area.
  • 4013 - Is the form a RTM may use to claim an annual sales tax refund. Members who do not reside within their Tribe's Agreement Area or who belong to a Tribe without an implemented tax agreement may not claim this refund.
  • MI-1040 - Michigan Income Tax Return.

  1. As a RTM how do I file the 4013?
  2. I already filed my MI-1040 electronically, how do I file the 4013?
  3. How does the 4013 credit work?
  4. Why does a second non-obligated spouse form get issued for the tribal sales tax credit and how is it prorated?
  5. I am a member of the _______ tribe; why did you deny my credit?
  6. Why isn't the 4013 form available on the Internet?
  7. How long does it take to receive the 4013 refund?
  8. If I don't have a federal adjusted gross income and am not required to file a Michigan income tax return (see answer to question 20 to verify whether they must file a MI 1040), can I file a 4013 without the Michigan income tax return?
  9. I am a Resident Tribal Member but my spouse is not. We filed a joint income tax return. Can I still file a 4013?
  10. My tribe did not implement its agreement until part way through the year. Does this reduce the amount of my 4013 refund?
  11. My tribe does not have a tax agreement with the State of Michigan. Can I still file the 4013?
  12. Does the 4013 refund feed over to a line on the Michigan Income Tax Return?
  13. I received a denial letter stating that I am not a Resident Tribal Member, how should I correct this?
  14. As a RTM how do I file the MI-1040?
  15. I am a RTM and my spouse is not. We live in the Agreement Area but do not work in the Agreement Area. How is our income prorated on the MI-1040 income tax return?
  16. Where do I subtract income based on my status as a RTM?
  17. Can a tribal member receive a homestead property tax credit or a home heating credit?
  18. Can I subtract my child welfare?
  19. If income is exempt from federal income tax, is it also exempt from Michigan tax?
  20. As a Resident Tribal Member, do I have to file a Michigan income tax return even if I am not required to file a federal income tax return?
  21. Can enrolled members of a federally recognized tribe without a State/Tribal Tax Agreement claim an Indian exemption on their Michigan income tax return?
  22. How do I know if my Tribe has an implemented tax agreement with the State?
  23. Does a member of a federally recognized Indian tribe that has a tax agreement with the State of Michigan qualify for the Michigan Earned Income Credit?
  24. Does a member of a federally recognized Indian tribe that does not have a tax agreement with the State of Michigan qualify for the Michigan Earned Income credit?
