Notice - For those of you who are RTM’s, the Annual Tribal 4013 Tax Credit forms were mailed out yesterday to those 18+ as of 1/1/2016. Minors, Executors to an RTM’s estate or people that have moved out of the TAA during 2016 may contact me directly for the form.
Please NOTE: These forms will not be emailed nor posted on the tribal website, nor on the SOM-Dept. of Treasury’s website…for a reason.
On June 11, 2006, Tribal Council passed Tribal Resolution 061106-15 which changed the Economic Development Department into the Department of Commerce and Odawa Enterprise Management.
Department of Commerce is responsible for the administration and/or oversight of the following:

Income Tax Filing Information: 2017 Tax Year
The 2017 Michigan Resident Tribal Member Annual Sales Tax Credit Forms (Tribal 4013’s) were mailed out to all persons ages 18+ (as of 1/1/2017). IF you lived in the Tax Agreement Area during 2017 and have since moved out, you may not have received the form. Please contact the DOC office to request one. The forms CANNOT be emailed to anyone. This is per the State of Michigan AND the Tribe’s discretion.
The Corporate Income Tax (CIT) and the Michigan Business Tax (MBT) tribal forms are now updated and available. Attached you’ll find both tax types, as some businesses are able to elect to continue under the MBT. (See below for detail.)
This is Treasury’s website information discerning who should file which form:
The Michigan Corporate Income Tax (CIT) was signed into law by Governor Rick Snyder on May 25, 2011. The CIT imposes a 6% corporate income tax on C corporations and taxpayers taxed as corporations federally. The CIT has one credit, the small business alternative credit, which offers an alternate tax rate of 1.8% of adjusted business income. There are no other credits, except those under the MBT election (addressed below). Insurance companies and financial institutions pay alternative taxes. The CIT replaces the Michigan Business Tax (MBT) for most taxpayers, effective January 1, 2012. Taxpayers with less than $350,000 in allocated or apportioned gross receipts and/or less than or equal to $100 in annual liability are not required to file or pay the CIT. The gross receipts threshold does not apply to financial institutions or insurance companies.
Additionally, on May 25, 2011, the Governor signed into law the MBT election which enables certain MBT taxpayers with certificated or awarded credits to continue using those credits once the CIT is in place. Such taxpayers may elect to continue filing and paying under the MBT until the expiration of the previously-awarded certificated credits.

Attention all resident Tribal Members(RTM’s):
If you are planning to purchase a vehicle, ORV, or plan on doing any home improvements to your principal place of residence, you need to contact Theresa Keshick first (see contact information below), before making the actual purchase(s). I will issue you a ‘Tribal Certificate of Exemption’ for such purchases. You must fill out the “Request for TCE” form, located on this page, or by contacting my office. The Tribe no longer uses the Refund Method, as indicated in the monthly newsletter, as of January 1, 2008. If you’ve already made a purchase, there is no recourse!!! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. Thank you.
