Whitmer & legislature propose competing tax cut plans

Both Governor Gretchen Whitmer and the Republican-led Legislature are proposing new plans to cut taxes -- but remain at odds over the scope and immediacy of any relief.

 

The governor called for a one-time $500 rebate for "working families" -- adding to her earlier proposals to gradually repeal a tax on retirement income and fully restore a credit for lower-wage earners.

 

Republican lawmakers approved a 2.5 billion dollar plan Thursday that would permanently reduce the state income tax, increase the personal exemption, create a child tax credit, fully bring back the credit for low-income workers, and expand a tax break for veterans.

 

The legislation now heads to the Governor's office for consideration.
