Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you.

You can file Form 4868 for an extension of time to file your federal tax return. You can send a copy of Form 4868 to MI to request an extension.

As to federal, if you're making a payment with your extension request, mail Form 4868 to: ***** P.O. Box 802503 Cincinnati, OH###-##-#### If you're not making a payment, mail Form 4868 to ***** Fresno, CA###-##-####

As to Michigan, mail a copy of Form 4868 to

Michigan Department of Treasury

P.O. Box 30774

Lansing, MI ###-##-####/p>

Please remember that an extension of time to FILE your returns is not an extension of time to PAY.

If you are expecting a refund from the IRS or the State of Michigan, there is no need to file an extension. There is no late filing penalty assessed if you will receive a refund.

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you and best regards,

Barb
