Truth in Taxation

Atten:  FairTaxers in Port Huron, MI & surrounds

Dear R George,  

Michigan is in deep economic trouble.  And an economic recovery gets more difficult with every family and business that leaves our state. (Nearly 1/2 million former Michigan citizens have left, over the last nine years, and the exodus continues!)

You've been reading about various plans to revise the MBT, an income tax on business, in an attempt to draw businesses - and jobs! - back to Michigan. What is not generally revealed is that taxing the income and payrolls of business, at all, is a hidden tax to you and me in higher prices! That's right, we are paying for business's tax costs when we purchase goods and services produced here.

There is only one plan that scraps the MBT, three other business taxes, and the personal income tax entirely - the
Michigan FairTax.

This is a citizen-initiated plan designed to stop punishing productivity (such as when a business hires new workers, or adds new equipment, or when we, as individuals, work longer hours) and rewards savings (by not taxing income on savings and investments).

Come, learn more . . .

MI FairTax is Michigan's Solution!

As well as providing the solution to Michigan's current economic "perfect storm," enacting a consumption-based tax system means NO more income tax returns under threat of audit, interest, and penalty. Additionally, MI FairTax ends government "taking theirs first" through wage tax withholding.

Instead, the state will send every legal resident family a monthly check, or electronic funds transfer, equal to 9.75% x monthly poverty-level dollar amount (based on family size) to un-tax basic necessities. Thus, no one will even start paying a MI FairTax until purchases exceed basic necessities.

And it does all of this-- without a tax code, without politicans determining who gets what, and without lobbyists tilting the advantage to wealthy corporations or politically-powerful special interests. With no income tax code to game, half the lobbyists in Lansing will need to look for new work!
Got family, friends, or associates who know nothing about this?  Bring them along!

MFTA seeks to educate the public about the non-partisan
Michigan FairTax plan (pdf) and the benefits of taxing consumption instead of income.  The progressive Michigan FairTax will untax all family spending to the poverty level, then increase - as an effective rate - as retail spending increases thereabove.  When enacted, it will remove business taxes and compliance costs from retail prices, and will make Michigan THE growth destination in America for business, jobs, and families.
