How do I calculate my use tax?

For information on how to calculate your use tax, see the 2014 Michigan Instructions booklet at the Michigan Department of Treasury website .

Remember, if you paid at least 6 percent to another state on your purchase, you do not owe use tax to Michigan. If you paid less than 6 percent, you only owe the difference.

Note: The full 6 percent use tax is owed on purchases made in a foreign country.

Examples of tangible personal property subject to use tax are clothing, electronics, furniture, jewelry or books. Examples of tangible personal property not subject to tax are grocery food items, prescription drugs, vitamins, newspapers and periodicals.
