2011 House Bill 4623: Let Detroit keep imposing higher income tax

Public Act 56 of 2011

Introduced by Rep. David Nathan (D) on May 10, 2011 To allow Detroit to continue to uniquely impose an income tax of 2.5 percent on residents and 1.25 percent on nonresidents. Other cities are allowed to impose individual income taxes at 1 percent for residents and 0.5 percent for non-residents; this is one of many laws that provides unique privileges or powers for "a city with a population greater than 750,000." The bill would lower that to 600,000 to accommodate Detroit's ongoing population decline.   Official Text and Analysis.
