State Rep. Aaron Miller has joined his colleagues in the Michigan House to approve legislation giving Michigan residents, including families and seniors, broader income-tax relief.
The legislation continues and increases the personal exemption ceiling for Michigan taxpayers and their dependents on their state income taxes. Other bills in the package provide additional tax alleviation for senior citizens in the form of raised credit.
Miller said the measures help senior citizens and those living paycheck to paycheck.
The package’s main bill ensures Michigan taxpayers will be able to continue claiming personal exemptions on their income taxes after federal tax reforms signed into law last month.
In addition, the bill increases the state’s personal exemption from the current $4,000 to $4,800 by the 2020 tax year.
House Bills 5420-22 advance to the Senate for consideration.
