first_img 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.###last_img read more

Rep Howrylak unveils plan to simplify prevailing wage formula

first_img15May Rep. Howrylak unveils plan to simplify prevailing wage formula State Rep. Martin Howrylak today unveiled a plan to align Michigan’s prevailing wage formula with the national Davis-Bacon Act wage structure.Currently, Michigan’s prevailing wage requires the state to engage in survey taking of employers, and results in a substantial amount of labor analysis and wage determinations. Oftentimes, illogical wage profiles result, such as grouping wages in Saginaw or Detroit with Houghton. Furthermore, since Davis Bacon wages are already determined by the federal government, the state would save the money and effort of administering a faulty and duplicative system of wages. From an employer standpoint, there is much less record-keeping because there are fewer wage rates.“This ends up being a bump for some wages but a drop for others because it is a fairer, more broadly determined wage,” Rep. Howrylak said. “It does not discriminate in setting the rates to only union contract jobs as the state does and is more properly divided regionally”Rep. Howrylak, of Troy, said his legislation is a solution to the debate over prevailing wage, which requires public works construction projects to offer prevailing union wages and benefits to workers. A ballot petition to repeal prevailing wages is underway, but Rep. Howrylak said his measure will preserve the wage structure in a more simplified form, thus benefiting both employers and employees.“In Michigan there are scores of different classifications of workers and differing prevailing wages depending on which region in the state the construction takes place,” Rep. Howrylak said. “Aligning our formula with the federal plan will streamline the contracting process by reducing the number of geographic regions, which will limit the multitude of job classifications. This is a good middle ground that will benefit employers and employees by simplifying the prevailing wage process.”Rep. Howrylak’s legislation, House Bill 6008, also includes a provision that public construction jobs receiving less than $50,000 in state funding be exempt from the prevailing wage law. This amount should allow for a school or institution to get significant repairs or replacements done in a hurry, such as roof or water damage after a storm, without having to go through a protracted bidding process.House Bill 6008 has been referred to the House Committee on Commerce and Trade.##### Measure benefits both employers and employees center_img Categories: Howrylak News,Newslast_img read more
