2007 House Bill 5139

Senate Roll Call 598: Passed

To increase the maximum amount of government pension income that is exempt under the state income tax, and index this to inflation. Note: Although government pensions up to these limits are state income tax exempt, the pensions of non-government workers are not exempt and are subject to the 4.35 percent state income tax. The bill would also not allow a person to deduct from state income tax the amount of a contribution to several Michigan education savings plan accounts, rather than just one, and would increase the cap on the amount of education plan contributions that a senior citizen may deduct. See House Bill 5138.
