2012 House Bill 6008: Establish new “non-ferrous” mine taxation regime (Senate Roll Call 989)
facebook  twitter 

Passed 26 to 12 in the Senate on December 13, 2012, to revise the taxation of “non-ferrous” mines (including new copper and other mineral mines in the Upper Peninsula). The bill is part of a package that would exempt these mines from property, income, sales and use taxes, and instead levy a “severance tax” on them based on the amount of material extracted. Various credits would be allowed against pre-operational start-up costs, including regulatory compliance costs. Most of the tax revenue would go to the local government, but some would go to a new state “rural development fund”.
