It seems I learn more than I wanted to know about a new state every tax season. This year it is apparently Michigan.

Here's the background. The client was a part year resident of Michigan in 2007 and was unsuccessful in selling her home there. Late in 2007, she listed it with a property manager for rental and her first renter moved in early in 2008. For 2008, 2009 and most of 2010 it was a rental. Late in 2010 it was sold. During the period it was a rental, it accumulated passive losses. In completing her prior years tax returns, I'm not sure if I need to file a Michigan tax return for 2008 or 2009 since she had no net Michigan income. For 2010, there is still no net Michigan income since the property sold at a loss.
