Taxation

The overall tax system in Michigan was dubbed “not tax-friendly” in a recently released 50-state tax guide published by the Kiplinger business forecasting website.

Nine other states were also placed in this category.

Kiplinger gauged the tax burden in each state based on taxes that would be paid by a married couple with combined incomes of $150,000. Under Kiplinger’s scenario, the couple, who have two children, also receive $10,000 in dividend income and are paying a mortgage on a $400,000 house.

Michigan has an average sales tax of 6 percent, an income tax of 4.25 percent (though cities can add to this), a gas tax per gallon of 43 cents and a median property tax of $1,729 per $100,000 of assessed tax valuation, according to the analysis.
