Chamber Presidents Says Graduated Income Tax Is Anti-Taxpayer, Anti-Business

May 26, 2017

A new video released by the Michigan Chamber explains why the Chamber is strongly opposed to legislative efforts to impose a massive tax increase on families, entrepreneurs and job providers by imposing a graduated income tax. This blatant redistribution of wealth would punish individuals and job providers for being successful and result in a $870 million tax increase on the hard-working citizens of Michigan.

As Michigan Chamber President & CEO Rich Studley explains, "Under today’s flat rate income tax, if you make more, you pay more. You don’t need a dangerous proposal to rewrite the state constitution and an even more reckless scheme to raise taxes on small business owners, entrepreneurs, investors and two income families.”
