Hildenbrand responds to passage of tax reform

LANSING – State Sen. Dave Hildenbrand, R-Lowell, made the following statement after a tax reform package moved through the Senate: “Overall I am pleased the Senate passed bills that would implement Governor Snyder’s sweeping tax overhaul proposal, including the repeal of the Michigan Business Tax and surcharge.  Although I supported the repeal of the MBT and its replacement with a 6% corporate income tax over the years, I did not support the extension of the income tax to pensions.  I think there are opportunities to realize savings throughout state government before bringing more tax dollars into the system – and that is where I will continue to focus a lot of my time and energy throughout the budget process.

“I certainly am pleased the MBT and surcharge are gone, something I have been working on since its inception in 2007.  I will continue to work to strengthen our economy and create an environment for job growth all across our state.”
