LANSING, Mich. — Legislation that would ensure Michigan residents are able to claim personal exemptions on their state and city incomes taxes received final approval from Gov. Rick Snyder Wednesday afternoon.

Senate Bills 748 and 750 seek to ensure all personal exemptions remain after some uncertainty caused by the Federal Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

SB 748 would ensure Michigan taxpayers can continue claiming the personal exemption on their state income taxes and SB 750, sponsored by Sen. Marty Knollenberg, would make the same assurance for city income tax exemptions.

“These measures will ensure Michigan residents are able to claim these much-deserved exemptions during future tax seasons,” said Knollenberg, R-Troy. “When coupled with the recent federal changes, these bills will provide a great deal of relief to middle-class families and their budgets.”
