In an ongoing effort to make the state a more attractive place for businesses to invest and grow, Michigan is phasing out its Personal Property Tax (PPT) for most businesses beginning in 2014. This reform will substantially reduce compliance and administrative costs for businesses and will be especially attractive to manufacturers who rely on expensive capital investments in tools and other equipment.
Manufacturers considering the Huron Township, Michigan area will certainly benefit from these tax breaks as well.
Eligible manufacturing personal property could include both commercial personal property and industrial personal property. More specifically, the term refers to all personal property located on real property where that personal property is used more than 50% of the time in industrial processing or in supporting industrial processes.
