House Appropriations Chairman Shane Hernandez (R-Port Huron) has called on the State to mirror the Federal government and delay the tax filing deadline to July 15. According to the Chair, this would help taxpayers and tax preparers who may have difficulty meeting the April 15 deadline due to the stay-at-home order. Additionally, this would help taxpayers keep and spend the money now, which would be due to the State if they have a tax liability. While he called on Governor Gretchen Whitmer to make the change, he stated he is prepared to pursue modification through the legislature if necessary.
