Categories: Hornberger News,News 25Jan Rep. Hornberger votes to bring tax relief to Michigan seniors, families Rep. Pamela Hornberger of Chesterfield Township joined her state House colleagues today in approving lower income taxes for Michigan families and seniors.The legislation continues and increases personal exemptions for Michigan taxpayers and their dependents, while providing additional relief for seniors.“I’m happy to cast votes that will save money for Michigan taxpayers,” Hornberger said. “This legislation will leave money in workers’ paychecks and help families make ends meet. It is well-deserved and long overdue tax relief.”The legislation ensures Michigan taxpayers can continue claiming personal exemptions on income taxes after federal tax reforms signed into law last month. In addition, the legislation gradually increases the state personal exemption from the current $4,000 to $4,800 for the 2020 tax year. Taxpayers in Michigan cities with an income tax will continue to be able to claim exemptions.Other legislation in the package helps senior citizens in addition to the personal exemption increase. The legislation provides a $100 income tax credit for a single filer age 62 or older – or $200 for joint filers.The bills include a provision to ensure school aid funding is not negatively affected by the legislation.House Bills 5420-22 advance to the Senate for further consideration.###
