Tax Revenue Comparison: Michigan and the U.S. Average
Recently released data from the U.S. Bureau of the Census shows that Michigan state and local taxes have moved much closer to the national averages over the last 25 years. Total tax revenues, both per capita and per $1,000 of personal income, are lower than the national average as are revenues from individual income and sales taxes. The property tax, despite Proposal A, is higher than the national average.
