Why are we doing this?
Jobs
4
Before: An obsolete, burdensome tax
• Harmed manufacturers
• Overwhelming compliance costs for small businesses
• Businesses hesitant to purchase new equipment
• Little to no CIT tax relief for large manufacturers
5
Before: Disincentivized business investment
• Discouraged businesses from expanding or relocating
• Michigan’s competitors already eliminated the tax
• Complicated and confusing for businesses – account
for property and revalue based on formulas annually

Essential Services Assessment (ESA)
15
State ESA
• Small assessment that provides
continued funding for local government
essential services, like police and fire
• Only assessed to businesses claiming
the manufacturing exemptions
16
State ESA
Better for local governments because:
Better for manufacturers because:
• No need to levy, collect or administer
• >80% tax reduction, on average
• No litigation risk – locals get
guaranteed revenue through the
use tax
• One return, submitted to the state
• No need to continue granting PPT
abatements and forgo revenue
17
• Simple statewide calculation based on
acquisition cost
• Three-tier rate structure provides simple
depreciation and is fixed in statute
What’s Next?
The August 5, 2014 statewide vote to dedicate a portion
of the existing state use tax as a local tax levied by a new
statewide authority.
If voters reject the proposal, the small parcel exemption
will end after 2014 and the Eligible Manufacturing
Personal Property exemptions will not take effect.
