Purpose
This form allows qualifying standard taxpayers to claim the
Small Business Alternative Credit and to le and pay the MBT
due without computing the Business Income Tax or Modied
Gross Receipts Tax imposed under Sections 201 and 203 of the
MBT Act. Qualied taxpayers may also use this form to claim
the Gross Receipts Filing Threshold Credit and any refundable
credits for which they are eligible.
NOTE: The MBT Election of Refund or Carryforward of Credits
(Form 4584) cannot be used in conjunction with this form.

Credit
Standard taxpayers (all taxpayers who are not nancial
institutions or insurance companies) are eligible to use this
form if all of the following conditions apply:
Gross receipts do not exceed $19,000,000.
Adjusted business income does not exceed $1,332,500.
Adjusted business income does not exceed $160,000 for
Individuals or Fiduciaries.
Filer is not a Unitary Business Group (UBG) or member of
a UBG.
Filer does not have to complete the MBT Schedule of
Recapture of Certain Business Tax Credits and Deductions
(Form 4587), and does not have net Investment Tax Credit
recapture from the MBT Credits for Compensation, Investment,
and Research and Development (Form 4570).
Filer is not apportioning business activity.
No partner has distributive income of more than $160,000.
Partnerships must include the MBT Schedule of Partners (Form
4578).
No individual, shareholder, or ofcer has allocated income
over $160,000. Corporations must include the MBT Schedule
of Shareholders and Ofcers(Form 4577). (Does not apply to
Individuals and Fiduciaries ling as Individuals.)
Filer is not a scal ler.
NOTE: Taxpayers leasing employees from professional
employer organizations must include the compensation
of ofcers and shareholders (of the operating company)
who receive compensation from the professional employer
organizations in determining the taxpayers’ eligibility for
Small Business Alternative Credit.
NOTE: A member of a Limited Liability Company (LLC) is
characterized for MBT purposes as a partner, shareholder, or
owner based on the federal tax classication of the LLC. An
LLC taxed as a Partnership for federal purposes must le
as a Partnership for MBT. Similarly, an LLC taxed as a C
Corporation or S Corporation for federal purposes must le
under that same status for MBT.
Corporations: Allocated income in the case of a C
Corporation is either:
a)Shareholder or ofcer compensation and director fees from
Form 4577, column L, or
b)Shareholder or ofcer compensation, director fees, and
share of business income or loss from Form 4577, column N.
If either (a) or (b) is greater than $160,000, the Corporation is
not eligible to le this form.
Allocated income for an S Corporation is shareholder
compensation, director fees, and share of business income or
loss from Form 4577, column N.
Even if eligible to le this form, a taxpayer may pay a lower
tax by ling the MBT Annual Return (Form 4567) and taking
the Small Business Alternative Credit using the MBT Common
Credits for Small Businesses(Form 4571). This is especially
true if any of the following applies:
An MBT business loss carryforward exists, or
A nonrefundable or hybrid (Form 4584) credit may be
claimed.
Tax Period Less Than 12 Months: If a business operates less
than 12 months, annualize gross receipts, business income, and
all income of shareholders, ofcers, and partners to determine
the eligibility for a Small Business Alternative Credit. Do not
use annualized numbers on the return, unless requested; use
them only to determine ling requirements and qualications
for credits.

Lines not listed are explained on the form.
Dates must be entered in MM-DD-YYYY format.
For periods less than 12 months, see the “General Information
for Standard Taxpayers” in the MBT Forms and Instructions
for Standard Taxpayers (Form 4600).
A taxpayer, other than a UBG, that does not le a separate
federal return (e.g., a taxpayer that is a federally disregarded
entity and that did not le as a separate entity, or a taxpayer
that is a member of a federal consolidated group) must prepare
a pro forma federal return or equivalent schedule and use it as
the basis for preparing its MBT return. A taxpayer (other than
a UBG) that owns one or more federally disregarded entities
must prepare a pro forma federal return or equivalent schedule
that excludes the activity of the disregarded entity(ies), and
use it as the basis for preparing its MBT return. For standard
members of a UBG, this pro forma requirement is addressed
in the MBT UBG Combined Filing Schedule for Standard
Members(Form 4580), Part 2A, and its instructions. For
additional information, see “Changes for Disregarded Entities”
in the “Important Information” section of the MBT Forms and
Instructions for Standard Taxpayers (Form 4600).
Amended Returns: To amend a current or prior year annual
return, complete the Form 4583 that is applicable for that year,

check the box in the upper-right corner of the return, and
attach a separate sheet explaining the reason for the changes.
Include an amended federal return or a signed and dated
Internal Revenue Service (IRS) audit document. Include all
schedules led with the original return, even if not amending
that schedule. Enter the gures on the amended return as they
should be. Do not include a copy of the original return with
your amended return.
Refund Only: For taxpayers with allocated gross receipts less
than $350,000, who are otherwise eligible to use this form and are
ling this form to claim a refund of estimates paid, skip lines 10
through 21 and lines 28 through 31.
Line 1: If not a calendar year taxpayer, enter the beginning
and ending dates that correspond to the taxable period reported
to the IRS.
Tax yearmeans the calendar year, or the scal year ending
during the calendar year, upon the basis of which the tax base
of a taxpayer is computed. If a return is made for a part of a
year, tax year means the period for which the return is made.
Generally, a taxpayer’s tax year is for the same period as is
covered by its federal income tax return.
Line 2: Enter the complete address and, if other than the
United States, enter the two-digit abbreviation for the country
code. See the list of country codes in Form 4600.
Correspondence about and any refund from this return will
be sent to the address used here. Check the new address box
if the address used on this line has changed from last ling.
The taxpayer’s primary address in Department of Treasury
(Treasury) les, identied as the legal address and used for all
purposes other than refund and correspondence on a specic
MBT return, will not change unless the taxpayer les a Notice of
Change or Discontinuance(Form 163). Exception: If mail sent
to the legal address has been returned to Treasury by the United
States Postal Service, Treasury will update the taxpayer’s legal
address with the address used on this line in the most recent
MBT return.
Line 3: Enter a brief description of business activity
(for example, forestry, sheries, mining, construction,
manufacturing, transportation, communication, electric, gas,
sanitary services, wholesale trade, retail trade, nance, or
services, etc.).
Line 4: Enter the start date of rst business activity in Michigan.
Line 5: Enter the entity’s six-digit North American Industry
Classication System (NAICS) code. For a complete list of six-
digit NAICS codes, see the U.S. Census Bureau Web site at
www.census.gov/eos/www/naics/, or enter the same NAICS
code used when ling the entity’s U.S. Form 1120, Schedule K,
U.S. Form 1120S, U.S. Form 1065or U.S. Form 1040,
Schedule C.
Line 6: Enter the date, if applicable, on which taxpayer went
out of existence. To complete the discontinuance for Michigan
taxes, le Form 163, which is available on Treasury’s Web site
at www.michigan.gov/treasuryforms. If the taxpayer is still
subject to another tax administered by Treasury, do not use this
line.
Line 7:Use the taxpayer’s Federal Employer Identication
Number (FEIN) or the Michigan Treasury (TR) assigned
number. Be sure to use the same account number on all forms.
If the taxpayer does not have an FEIN or TR number,
the taxpayer MUST
registerbeforelingthisform.
Taxpayers are encouraged to register online at
www.michigan.gov/businesstaxes. The Web site provides
information on obtaining an FEIN, which is required to submit
taxes through e-le. Taxpayers usually can obtain an FEIN from
the IRS within 48 hours. Taxpayers registering with the State
online usually receive an account number within seven days.
Returns received without a registered account number will not
be processed until such time as a number is provided.
Line 8:Check the box that describes the organization type.
A Trust or LLC should check the appropriate box based on its
federal return.
NOTE:A federally disregarded entity that les MBT as
a distinct entity is classied for MBT purposes according
to the federal tax classication of its owner. For additional
information, see “Changes for Disregarded Entities” in the
“Important Information” section of the MBT Forms and
Instructions for Standard Taxpayers (Form 4600).
Part 1: Calculation of Tax
Line 9:Gross receipts means the entire amount received by
the taxpayer, as determined by using the taxpayer’s method of
accounting for federal income tax purposes, from any activity,
whether in intrastate, interstate, or foreign commerce, carried
out for direct or indirect gain, benet, or advantage to the
taxpayer or to others, with certain exceptions.
Calculation of gross receipts also involves a phased-in
deduction (75 percent in the 2011 tax year) of any amount
deducted as bad debt for federal income tax purposes that
corresponds to items of gross receipts included in the modied
gross receipts tax base for the current tax year or past tax
years. This partial reduction is reected in the Gross Receipts
Worksheet(Worksheet 4700) discussed below. Receipts
include, but are not limited to:
Receipts (sales proceeds) from the sale of assets used in a
business activity
Sale of products
Services performed
Gratuities stipulated on a bill
Sales tax collected on the sale of tangible personal property,
subject to a phase-out schedule
Dividend and interest income
Gross commissions earned
Rents
Royalties
Sales of scrap and other similar items
Client reimbursed expenses not obtained in an agency
capacity
Gross proceeds from sales between afliated companies,
including members of a UBG.
Use Worksheet 4700, in Form 4600, to calculate gross receipts.
Attach this worksheet to the return. Gross receipts are not
necessarily derived from the federal return; however, this
worksheet will calculate gross receipts as dened by law in
most instances. Taxpayers and tax professionals are expected to
be familiar with uncommon situations within their experience,
which produce gross receipts not identied by specic lines on
this form, and report that amount on the most appropriate line.
Treasury may adjust the amount resulting from this worksheet
to account properly for such uncommon situations.
Line 10: Business income means that part of federal taxable
income derived from business activity. For MBT purposes,
federal taxable incomemeans taxable income as dened in
Internal Revenue Code (IRC) § 63, except that federal taxable
income shall be calculated as if IRC § 168(k) [as applied to
qualied property placed in service after December 31, 2007] and
IRC § 199 were not in effect. For a Partnership or S Corporation
(or LLC federally taxed as such), business income includes
payments and items of income and expense that are attributable
to business activity of the Partnership or S Corporation and
separately reported to the partners or shareholders.
Use the Business Income Worksheet (Worksheet 4746), in Form
4600, to calculate business income. Attach this worksheet
to the return. This worksheet will calculate business income
as dened by law in most circumstances. Taxpayers and tax
professionals are expected to be familiar with uncommon
situations within their experience, which produce business
income not identied by specic lines on this worksheet, and
report that amount on the most appropriate line. Treasury may
adjust the amount resulting from this worksheet to account
properly for such uncommon situations.
For an organization that is a mutual or cooperative electric
company exempt under IRC § 501(c)(12), business income
equals the organizations excess or deciency of revenues over
expenses as reported to the federal government, less capital
credits paid to members of that organization, less income
attributed to equity in another organizations net income,
and less income resulting from a charge approved by a state
or federal regulatory agency that is restricted for a specied
purpose and refundable if it is not used for the specied
purpose.
For a tax-exempt person, business income means only that
part of federal taxable income (as dened for MBT purposes)
derived from unrelated business activity.
For an Individual or an Estate, or for a Partnership or Trust
organized exclusively for estate or gift planning purposes,
business income is that part of federal taxable income (as
dened for MBT purposes) derived from transactions,
activities, and sources in the regular course of the taxpayer’s
trade or business, including the following:
All income from tangible and intangible property if the
acquisition, rental, management, or disposition of the property
constitutes integral parts of the taxpayer’s regular trade or
business operations.
Gains or losses incurred in the taxpayer’s trade or
business from stock and securities of any foreign or domestic
Corporation and dividend and interest income.
Income derived from isolated sales, leases, assignment,
licenses, divisions, or other infrequently occurring dispositions,
transfers, or transactions involving property if the property is or
was used in the taxpayer’s trade or business operation.
Income derived from the sale of a business.
NOTE: Personal investment income, gains from the sale of
property held for personal use and enjoyment or other assets
not used in a trade or business, and any other income not
specically derived from a trade or business that is earned,
received, or otherwise acquired by an Individual, an Estate,
or a Trust or Partnership organized or established exclusively
for estate or gift planning purposes, are not included in the
Business Income Tax base. This exclusion only applies to the
specic types of taxpayers identied above. Investment income
and any other types of income earned or received by all other
types of persons or taxpayers not specically referenced must
be included in the business income of the taxpayer.
Line 11: Enter all capital losses that were used federally to
offset capital gain. This is not the net amount found on the
U.S. Schedule D lines identied below, but rather the amount
of capital losses that were used in reaching the net amount on
those federal return lines. If ling U.S. Form 1040 or 1041,
include the capital loss amount that the Individual or Fiduciary
was able to use against the capital gain and the capital loss
amount that the Individual or Fiduciary was permitted to
deduct from ordinary income ($3,000 or less). Use both long-
term and short-term capital losses here.
Identify the capital losses used in calculating the net amount
using “Net short-term capital gain or (loss)” and “Net long-
term capital gain or (loss)” from Schedule D of federal Forms
1040, 1041, 1065, 1120 and 1120S, as applicable.
Also include on this line the net operating loss carryback or
carryover from the federal schedule that was included in the
business income reported on line 10. Report each of these
amounts as a positive number.
Line 17: For tax periods less than 12 months, enter annualized
gross receipts.

Line 29: If penalty and interest are owed for not ling estimated
returns or for underestimating a tax, complete the MBT Penalty
