Michigan 2011: Nonresident/Part-Year Spouse
When a Michigan tax return includes one spouse as a nonresident or part-year resident, the Michigan tax is based on a share of various incomes.
Certain Michigan resident taxpayers, whose spouse was a nonresident or part-year resident of Michigan, may have filed an incorrect Michigan tax return.
TurboTax has fixed this issue.
