2012 Senate Bill 970

House Roll Call 820: Passed

To allow Detroit to suspend a state-mandated gradual reduction of its city income tax to the maximum rate allowed for other cities (1 percent for residents and 0.5 percent for non-residents). This would allow the current the city to keep its current rates of 2.4 percent and 1.2 percent, repectively, until debt incurred to fix broken streetlights is repaid (see House Bill 5688). When the mandated tax rate reduction was first enacted Detroit's income tax took 3 percent from residents and 1.5 percent from nonresidents who work in the city.
