The state Treasury Department estimates Michigan's exposure from the decision at $1.1 billion, plus interest.

Officials say a corporate tax case decided last month by the Michigan Supreme Court could cost the state more than $1 billion.
The ruling is a 4-3 opinion in favor of IBM and against the Michigan Department of Treasury in a long-standing tax dispute about how corporations that do business in several states may calculate their Michigan taxes.
The ruling means IBM would get a $6 million tax refund for 2008, rather than the $1.3 million calculated by Michigan Treasury. The newspaper reports, however, that other companies could be affected along with Michigan Business Tax cases in the 2009 and 2010 tax years.
