Recent legislative changes to Michigan’s income tax withholding laws became effective on January 1, 2012. As an IRA holder, you may be affected by these laws. On January 1, 2012, MSUFCU began withholding Michigan State Income Tax on certain Traditional IRA withdrawals. More recent guidance from the State of Michigan has clarified that these changes also govern Roth IRA withdrawals. For this reason, MSUFCU will begin withholding Michigan State Income Tax on certain Roth IRA withdrawals on Wednesday, March 21, 2012.
The Michigan Income Tax Act is requiring taxpayers, who are legal residents of Michigan and are born on or after January 1, 1946, to withhold 4.25% of all Traditional and Roth IRA withdrawals for the purpose of state income tax. As the custodian of your IRA, the MSUFCU is required by law to send these funds to the State of Michigan.
You may qualify for personal exemptions that would reduce the amount required to be withheld. In addition, you may elect not to have state income tax withheld from your distributions and may choose to make estimated tax payments. There are penalties for not paying enough state income tax during the year, either through withholding or estimated tax payments. If you performed a Roth IRA withdrawal at MSUFCU prior to March 21, 2012, that withdrawal may be subject to Michigan State Income Tax Withholding. Please consult the advice of a professional tax consultant to determine your options.
If you are eligible to have a withholding rate other than 4.25% withheld or you elect not to have state income tax withheld on your IRA disbursements, you will be required to complete form MI W-4P and return it to the Credit Union in advance of the withdrawals.
