Record State Budget? Time for Tax Relief!

With a record state budget and $7 billion remaining on the table from the School Aid and General Fund, it is time for our elected officials to REPEAL the tax on retirement income.

A number of bills have been introduced on both sides of the aisle, to reduce, reform, or repeal the tax. Governor Whitmer proposed phasing out taxation of pension benefits over four years in her initial FY 2022-2023 budget proposal this past February. Her plan calls for a phased approach over the course of four years and would result in a full repeal of the pension tax. At this time, the governor has not introduced a formal bill. MARSP supports all efforts to alleviate the taxation of seniors’ retirement income and continues meeting with legislators to help guide them toward repeal. We encourage you to contact them as well using the form on this page.
