  • DARK STORE TAX DECISIONS ARE DAMAGING OUR COMMUNITIES.  ACT NOW TO STOP THE BLEEDING!
  • Michigan Tax Tribunal decisions — the “Dark Store” tax policy — bleeds millions of dollars from Michigan communities.  It’s a scam, a huge tax break for multi-billion dollar corporations.  Businesses pad their bottom line by pulling money from public treasuries.
  • Michigan’s counties, cities, and townships now strain their budgets, forced to make permanent cuts for vital public functions: libraries, schools, police, fire and emergency services, public transit, roads, parks, trails, and programs for youth, seniors, and veterans.
  • Hold corporations responsible to support our communities.  And stop the bleeding of public treasuries.
  • We need ACTION NOW!  House Bill 5578.
