Employer Withholding

Similiar to other Michigan cities, Lansing has adopted the Michigan Uniform City Income Tax Act.  Employers conducting business in Lansing must withhold Lansing city income taxes for employees who work or live in the City.  In addition to withholding requirements, Lansing has an income tax for corporations, partnerships, limited liability companies and sole proprietorships.  

Lansing has an on-line withholding system that allows you, the employer, more control and access to your withholding data. 

If you have any questions, please contact us at 517-483-4114 or e-mail us at withholding@lansingmi.gov
