opinion/mackinac center: Mackinac Center takes a closer look at study regarding state and local tax incentives
The use of state and local tax incentives to businesses is on the minds of publications across the U.S. After a recent story published by the New York Times on the topic, the Mackinac Center for Public Policy took another look at what the information means for Michigan.
In a column, the center takes a look at how Michigan financially measures up and also breaks down myths surrounding the businesses that go through the process of applying for the tax breaks.
The column states businesses applying for the breaks are not the issue, the people handing out special deals are the problem — which is not always how it is perceived by the public.
The center has taken a firm stance to fight select tax incentives and breaks since their inception, and plan to continue working to do so.
