  • Internet connection
  • Internet Explorer 11 or higher
  • Windows Media Player 9.0 or higher for Training videos

Note: While MERTS software is NOT supported on Apple/MAC computers, filers have successfully used the MERTS program and filed statements on a MAC using a PC emulator. Please be advised that we cannot provide advice on the choice, installation or use of the emulator. Nor can we guarantee that all issues will be resolved by the MERTS helpdesk. Bureau staff do not have access to or training on the use of MAC computers needed to reproduce and test issues that may arise.

Loading MERTS to a computer that is part of a network: Users are advised to check with the system administrator to verify that their network firewalls will support MERTS.

Downloading and Executing MERTS: To download the MERTS software a username and password is required. To obtain the username and password, a committee member must participate in either an online training or a traditional training in Lansing. Both trainings are one to two hours in duration. Visit the MERTS website to get started

Once downloaded execute and open the program by selecting Start, Programs, and Michigan Applications from the list of programs.
