Snyder unveiled the plans in the months after he took office on Jan. 1, and they narrowly passed both the state House of Representatives and Senate.
The tax reform eliminates the Michigan Business Tax, cuts exemptions for individuals, and eliminates many credits, including the Earned Income Tax credit for low-income wage-earners and donations to community foundations.
