WhMichigan Gov. Vetoes Tax Breaks Related to COVID-19 Expenses

LANSING, Mich. — Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has vetoed two bills that would let businesses seek refunds for taxes paid on personal protective equipment, disinfectants and plexiglass barriers during the coronavirus pandemic.

Whitmer said Friday that she instead favors creating a direct grant program with federal money. She says tax credits would be ineligible for reimbursement from Washington, a blow to the state budget.

The bills passed the Legislature with support from both parties.

The Detroit Regional Chamber, an influential business group, is disappointed. It says the bills “responded to the needs of businesses that were doing everything that Gov. Whitmer asked of them to keep employees and patrons safe.”
