3 Simple Ways You Can Support PPT Reform

The Northern Michigan Chamber Alliance strongly supports a “YES” vote on Proposal 1 on August 5th, the proposal to stabilize local community services and help small businesses create jobs – without raising taxes.Passing Proposal 1 is an opportunity to eliminate the Personal Property Tax (PPT) for small businesses in Michigan, and eventually all Michigan companies. Revenues will be replaced with the more equitable and stable state Use Tax, with the majority of replacement revenue coming from expiring business tax credits.

The Chamber and Alliance support the Michigan Citizens for Strong and Safe Communities’ efforts to get the word out about Proposal 1 – and we need your help.
