A look at property tax increases

ANN ARBOR (WKZO) -- The majority of Michigan's local government leaders believe revenue from the personal property tax is important to their budgets.

The tax has been a target of proposed reform in Michigan among those who argue that its complexity makes it burdensome for both businesses and local governments.  Opponents of the tax also claim that it discourages economic development by penalizing business investments.

The Michigan Personal Property Tax is assessed on businesses for their property such as equipment, furniture and computer.  According to a University of Michigan survey though more than two-thirds of local leaders report  they don't trust the state government to follow through on commitments it might make to replace lost personal property tax revenues.
