LANSING (WKZO) -- A report released this week by the Michigan League for Human Services highlights the impact of changes to the Earned Income Tax Credit.
The group's Judy Putnam says the reduction of the credit made in 2011 shifted tax burden from businesses to individuals. She says while it was meant to help the state's economy, they believe it's had a disproportionate impact on families and they hope a change can be made.
"We wanted to make sure this report was out there so that lawmakers would know what's happening in their backyards and what's happening to small businesses in their backyards because of the results of this," says Putnam. "These are dollars that...get spent locally."
Putnam hopes it will come up during a revenue estimating conference to be held Wednesday.
