Michigan legislature recently passed changes to the statute affecting the Essential Services Assessment (ESA). Most importantly, the deadline for eligible taxpayers that failed to file, or filed an incomplete form 5278 with their local assessor to claim the Eligible Manufacturing Personal Property (EMPP) exemption for 2016 has been extended to Tuesday, May 31, 2016.
Forms must be completely filled out and received by the local assessor by the May 31, 2016 deadline. Postmarks by the due date will not be accepted.
No changes to due dates for future filing periods have been made, but this is a second chance for many taxpayers to take advantage of the savings of the new ESA.
