Ax MI Tax Fails to Acquire Needed Signatures

Posted on July 10, 2024 by Dave Hodgkins

The Ax MI Tax ballot initiative has failed to gather enough signatures to be on the November ballot. As a reminder, this proposal seeks to eliminate all property taxes in the state of Michigan. If successful, it would have devastated local services—not just for our cities, villages, and townships, but for every public entity funded by property tax.

The Michigan Municipal League has led advocacy efforts to provide education and materials on this proposal’s true impact on communities.

We encourage you to continue helping your community understand the importance of local funding to provide vital services and create the places they call home. Ax MI Tax will likely push for future access to the ballot with another signature drive, so your involvement is critical to defeating the initiative.

Together, we will continue to fight for a better Michigan.
