A heads-up for non-residents who work in Detroit.

For the 2005 tax year, the city requires you to submit a letter from your employer if you want to claim any days not worked in the city for Schedule N.

If you spend a lot of time working outside of the city, this could affect your tax liability.

Here's what our employer sent out...

Effective tax year 2005, City of Detroit is requiring that non-resident taxpayers who allocate less than 100% of their income to provide documentation from their employer to verify lines 1 and 2 of Schedule N and attach to the return. Attach work log, if applicable.

If no documentation is provided, the tax return will be returned to the taxpayer requesting the missing documentation. This will result in delayed refunds.

At this time, the language below seems to be a "managerial decision" by people in the City's Department of Finance, vs. a change ordered by an ordinance or other law. Our State and Local experts in the office are consulting with other firms and city employers to discuss this change with the City's Department of Finance.

YAY!!! The more the suburbantopians pay property taxes to Detroit. The less the give back in refund checks. 10% of the suburban tax property money goes to King Kwame's T.H.U.G. Mafia Corporation.
