“My Senate colleagues and I want to help ensure that businesses, the backbone of our state’s economy, are not suffering from any unintended consequences of the MBT,” said Jansen, R-Gaines Township. “By establishing this subcommittee we will be able to listen to taxpayers and work to make the new tax more fair and equitable.”
The MBT replaced the widely despised Single Business Tax last year. Since the inception of the new tax, the Finance Committee has heard copious testimony that the tax is unduly harming small businesses.
