State Rep. Tom Kuhn, R-Troy, today announced Michigan taxpayers and small-business owners will now receive permanent income tax relief after Republicans successfully stopped efforts by the governor and legislative Democrats to block the promised relief.
“All Michigan taxpayers should now benefit from permanent income tax relief for the rest of their working lives,” said Kuhn, a member of the House Appropriations Committee. “And the tax savings is coming precisely at the right time. People are still struggling with high inflationary costs and deserve this long-term relief that was promised to them years ago.”

Other provisions in the plan to increase tax savings for retired seniors and boost the earned income tax credit for working families — policies that Rep. Kuhn championed at the start of this year — will take effect next year should the governor sign the bill.
“Lead poisoning is a grave concern in Michigan, and these bills will make a profound impact on our state’s children,” said Kuhn, of Troy. “By detecting lead exposure early on, we can initiate timely solutions and ultimately prevent the devastating long-term effects of lead toxicity.
