Here’s how your local state lawmakers voted on legislation this week:


House Bill 5766 – Coronavirus epidemic response bills, Tax Tribunal deadlines: passed 37-0 in the Senate. To extend for up to 96 days the filing deadlines for appeals to the Michigan Tax Tribunal during 2020. Specifically, for deadlines that normally fall between May 27 and the end of August, the new deadline would be Aug. 31. The Senate Fiscal Agency describes the Tax Tribunal as “an administrative court that hears tax appeals for all Michigan taxes (and) has jurisdiction over assessment disputes only after the assessment has been protested before the (local) Board of Review.”
