The Department of Treasury is making a few changes in their forms for wholesaler reimbursements for digital stamping based on P.A. 298 – MDVA’s recently passed legislation to clarify those reimbursements. Specifically, form 5191 ‘Application for Compensation for Certain Upgrades to Cigarette Tax Stamping Technology and Equipment’ will be adjusted, and the descriptions on page 2 will be re-written. If a wholesaler has already submitted form 5191, the Department will still accept it, and will contact the wholesaler if more information is needed.
The Department of Treasury expects all MI wholesalers to be running only digital stamping machines by the end of the 2014 calendar year.
