100% Replacement Personal Property Tax Bills Introduced in Senate

Posted on February 25, 2014 by Dene Westbrook

PPT Press Conference

Local government leaders joined business officials and legislators at this morning's press conference on a new Personal Property Tax bill package.

This morning (Tuesday, Feb. 25, 2014) the Senate introduced a ten bill package that represents months of negotiations on personal property tax (PPT) reform. The Michigan Municipal League’s message on PPT has consistently been 100 percent, guaranteed replacement. The bills do represent 100 percent replacement and a more stable reimbursement mechanism.

The bills, Senate Bills 821-830, will be taken up in the Senate Finance Committee on Wednesday, February 26. We anticipate the bills moving quickly through the legislative process, likely before spring break in April.

League staff and League members joined Lt. Gov. Brian Calley this morning in a news conference about the new PPT package. Go here to read about the news conference. View more photos from today’s PPT press conference. View a League press release about the announcement.
