This 228-page tax reform bill notably, for tax years beginning on or after January 1, 2016:

  • reduces gross receipts tax rates;
  • provides for a flat income tax rate of two and one-half percent on taxable income (adjusted annually for inflation) above:
  • $141,975 for married individuals filing separate returns,
  • $283,950 for heads of household, surviving spouses and married individuals filing joint returns,
  • $189,300 for single individuals and estates and trusts; and
  • repeals the corporate income and franchise tax act, the estate tax act, the motor vehicle excise tax act, and an assortment of other tax acts;


A possible concern with this bill is the scope of the revamp and the potential effect on the State’s revenues and its ability to fund its agencies at the levels necessary to keep up the work of the agencies. Another potential concern is that reducing the income tax, and raising the level of income to which it applies, may also reduce the interest of taxpayers in making charitable contributions to organizations that engage in public policy work.
