2009 House Bill 5346

House Roll Call 613: Passed

To create a new type of targeted tax break and subsidy authorizing entity called “next Michigan development corporations,” which would empower certain government officials and appointees to grant select businesses the extensive tax breaks and exemptions of “renaissance zones,” in addition to targeted tax breaks authorized by other “economic development” programs. The bill would allow the recipient of a tax break who does not have any tax liability to "sell" the credit to another taxpayer who does owe taxes, in effect making it a subsidy.
