Some members of the Michigan Legislature are proposing to raise taxes on nearly 800,000 lower-income working families and their children by $330 million, while supporting a massive $1.5 billion tax cut for businesses. Under the proposal, 85 percent of Michigan's 300,000 businesses will end up paying no taxes at all -- regardless of how much they make, or how many state and local services they require.
These lawmakers want to pay for a business tax cut by eliminating the Earned Income Tax Credit, which returns an average of $432 to families, most with children.
Michigan is joining together to oppose higher taxes on the working poor.
