House Republicans want to kill off tax surcharge
(2008-01-16)
(wgvu) - LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Efforts already have started in the
Legislature to get rid of a 22 percent surcharge on Michigan's new
business tax.
A bill introduced Wednesday in the state House would repeal the
Michigan Business Tax surcharge passed late last year. The bill was
introduced by Dan Acciavatti, a Republican from Macomb County's
Chesterfield Township. He says the tax increase was not needed.
Democrats who control the House likely will oppose the bill.
The business tax surcharge was passed as part of a compromise.
It allowed the repeal of an unpopular sales tax on some services in
Michigan.
