Michigan Tobacco Tax e-File XML System starting July 30, 2018

The ASCii File format will no longer be accepted after July 20, 2018. If you currently use the ASCii File format, we recommend you consider using the Excel spreadsheet, which is a similar format to the ASCii File format. While the XML format is available to all licensees to use, it could require more extensive programming than the Excel Spreadsheet.

The new tobacco tax filing system will offer three online methods.

  • Web filing - Manual entry of your return directly in the online portal.
  • Excel Spreadsheet - An updated Excel spreadsheet that can be uploaded in the online portal.
  • Excel spreadsheet template(s) will be available soon. XML Fill Format - Upload return data through the online portal (Schema available in June 2018.)
