Governor Snyder faces business tax questions while attending auto show

DETROIT, MI (WTVB) - Governor Snyder got a sneak preview of the North American International Auto Show yesterday and probably wanted to talk about cars, but the automakers he met wanted to talk politics, wanting to know what he was doing about the cost of doing business in Michigan. Ford’s Joseph Heinrichs told the governor that only manufacturers in Michigan pay taxes on the equipment they use to make cars. Snyder assured him they have been looking for a way to eliminate that tax. But it also generates revenue that cities depend on to pave streets and keep police on the road, and they are looking for some other source of revenue to replace it.
