Wyoming City Manager's Blog - Personal Property Tax Elimination

From: http://www.wyomingmi.gov

The hot topic this week for Michigan cities, counties, townships and villages is the State Legislature’s plan to eliminate Personal Property Tax, or PPT. PPT is paid by businesses to the individual taxing jurisdictions and is based upon the applicable millage rate and the “value” of their personal property, which includes things such as equipment, computers, desks, etc. For the City of Wyoming, the PPT provides approximately $3 million in funding.

Over the last few weeks, I have had the opportunity to attend a couple of conferences to network and interact with other communities not only in Michigan but also worldwide. As President of the Michigan Local Government Managers Association, I attended the Michigan Municipal League Conference on Mackinac Island two weeks ago. This conference draws representatives of nearly every community in the State. It is a chance to exchange ideas and generate new ideas with regards to the future direction of our communities.

Last week I had the opportunity to attend the West Michigan Policy Forum.  I would like to thank John Weiss and the Grand Valley Metro Council for this opportunity as they provided my “scholarship” for this event.  The West Michigan Policy Forum is a gathering of business leaders mainly from West Michigan designed to discuss improving the business climate, economy and general fiscal health of the State of Michigan.  Over two days they work to define policies and prioritize issues they feel are necessary to positively impact this process.  I also attended the original forum in 2008 and felt the information was presented in a similar manner seeking similar input.
