Today Gov. Whitmer once again voted against the people of Michigan and vetoed Rep. Matt Hall of Comstock Township, Michigan tax cut plan. Rep. Hall’s tax cut House Bill 4568, the Family Inflation Relief Plan, would have:
- Lowered Michigan’s state income tax from 4.25% to 4%
- Increased the personal income tax deduction by $1,800 or $3,600 with joint filers
- Increase the standard deduction for people 67 and older to $21,800 for single filers and $43,600 for joint filers that will be adjusted for inflation
- A $500 per child tax credit for those under the age of 19
- Increases the earned income tax credit from 6% to 20%
- Expands property tax relief for disabled veterans and their families.
Governor Whitmer voted against all of the above. She vetoed a plan that would have given all Michigan residents tax relief in a time when it is needed more than ever. Governor Whitmer states she wants to help the people of Michigan when her actions speak much louder than her words. Her actions are much more powerful than her words.
Rep. Matt Hall, of Comstock Township, stated:
“We keep trying to provide relief from record inflation and high prices at the pump, but the governor keeps turning it down and denying the people we represent the help they need. We actually took her suggestions from her previous veto and included things she said she wanted in this plan, but apparently it wasn’t enough to change her mind and convince her that Michigan families shouldn’t keep falling further and further behind with each monthly bill. I don’t know if she will ever change her mind and allow hard-working taxpayers to keep more of their own money, but I do know House Republicans will continue to fight for tax relief and continue to give her the chance to finally do the right thing. This isn’t over.”
It is not over because Rep. Hall will continue to stand up to Gov. Whitmer and fight for all Michigan residents.
