Approved by Board of Directors, September 12, 2001
The Michigan Chamber of Commerce supports legislation to allow the State of Michigan to enter into a multi-state agreement to simplify administration of sales and uses taxes by reducing the burden of tax compliance on individuals and businesses through the development of a more uniform collection process. In order to receive support from the Michigan Chamber, any streamlined sales tax legislation must:
- Conform with national model legislation.
- Provide for adequate legislative oversight, including a December 31, 2002 sunset date.
- Contain meaningful safeguards for taxpayers, and
- Not result in a broadening of the tax base.
