Proposal 1 takes care of two critical problems facing Michigan: it will eliminate Personal Property Tax (PPT) on equipment for local small businesses and manufacturers across the state and it will also replace 100 percent of the lost PPT revenue to local communities that depend on it to provide local services. Both problems are solved without a tax increase for anyone.
When passed, Proposal 1 is expected to create up to 15,000 new Michigan jobs and $450 million in new business investment.
