NFIB’s Owens: Small business pay more than their fair share.
As reports surface that Michigan’s sin tax revenue surpassed its business tax revenue last year, NFIB/Michigan State Director Charlie Owens defended small businesses against the claim that they were getting a free pass.
“We’re paying more than our fair share,” Owens told The Detroit News. “We’re not getting sweetheart deals, we’re not getting carve-outs.”
Michigan businesses paid some $810 million in income taxes in 2014, compared with consumers paying $290.5 million in taxes on beer, tobacco, wine and liquor.
