East Lansing To Vote On Adding Income Tax

Jun 21, 2017

Voters in East Lansing will consider adding an income tax in November. 

The city council last night voted to put a measure on the ballot that would institute a one-percent income tax on residents, and one-half percent on people who work in the city but live elsewhere.

Residents would get some relief in the form of a property tax cut. The income tax and the property tax reduction would both have to win voter approval to go into effect.
