A sample resolution supporting the statewide ballot on August 5, 2014 for Personal Property Tax reform to go into effect is now available on the League’s website here.
The campaign to pass the August 5, 2014 ballot proposal, the last step in personal property tax (PPT) reform, kicked off last month with a series of press conferences. The Michigan Citizens for Strong and Safe Communities coalition is seeking to pass a ballot referendum that would allow for use of a portion of the currently collected statewide use tax to fully reimburse communities for PPT loss.
We encourage members to support the full replacement of PPT dollars with a significantly more stable reimbursement mechanism by voting “yes” on August 5. If your community passes and/or takes up this resolution please let the League’s Matt Bach know at [email protected] as he is tracking the number of resolutions among Michigan cities, villages and urban townships.
