INSTRUCTIONS TO EMPLOYEE’S
MICHIGAN WITHHOLDING EXEMPTION CERTIFICATE (Form MI-W4)
You must submit a Michigan withholding exemption certificate (form MI-W4) to your employer on or before the date that employment begins. If you fail or refuse to submit this certificate, your employer must withhold tax from your compensation without allowance for any exemptions. Your employer is required to notify the Michigan Department of Treasury if you have claimed 10 or more personal or dependency exemptions or claimed that you are exempt from withholding.
You MUST provide a new MI-W4 to your employer within 10 days if your residency status changes or if your exemptions decrease because: a) your spouse, for whom you have been claiming an exemption, is divorced or legally separated from you or claims his/her own exemption(s) on a separate certificate, or b) a dependent no longer qualifies under the Internal Revenue Code.
Line 5: If you check “Yes,” enter your date of hire.
Line 6: Personal and dependency exemptions. The number of exemptions claimed here may not exceed the number of exemptions you are entitled to claim on a Michigan Individual Income Tax Return (Form MI-1040). Dependents include qualifying children and qualifying relatives under the Internal Revenue Code, even if your AGI exceeds the limits to claim federal tax credits for them.

- Your personal exemption if someone else will claim you as their dependent.
- Your personal exemption with more than one employer at a time.
- Your spouse’s personal exemption if they claim it with their employer.
- Your dependency exemptions if someone else (for example, your spouse) is claiming them with their employer.
