2012 Senate Bill 970: Allow higher Detroit city income tax (House Roll Call 820)
facebook  twitter 

Passed 59 to 50 in the House on December 13, 2012, to allow Detroit to suspend a state-mandated gradual reduction of its city income tax to the maximum rate allowed for other cities (1 percent for residents and 0.5 percent for non-residents). This would allow the current the city to keep its current rates of 2.4 percent and 1.2 percent, repectively, until debt incurred to fix broken streetlights is repaid (see House Bill 5688). When the mandated tax rate reduction was first enacted Detroit's income tax took 3 percent from residents and 1.5 percent from nonresidents who work in the city.

You know you can't trust Detroit to keep there word. That all they need is to have more money in there slimmy hands they will still it like they have been ever since Coleman Young was elected Mayor of the city. You know the black cannot manage money if yoy give them a nickle they will spend a dollar. so I vote not to give Detroit anymore money.
