This week the House Tax Policy Committee voted out 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, now head to the House floor. We expect the House will vote on the legislation next week. We anticipate these bills will continue moving quickly through the legislative process, likely making it to the Governor’s desk before spring break in April.
