** If the days fall in more than one calendar year, determine steps 6 through 10 separately for each year.

The amount on step 11 is your total tax, penalty and interest due. If you file a paper Form M1, include with your return the above worksheet or a separate statement showing how you computed penalty and interest.

Do not include the penalty and interest amounts on your Form M1.
