A Michigan Representative proposes Dark Store payback into the Millions.

Beau Lafave
State Representative, Beau LaFave is getting ready to introduce legislation that would require the State of Michigan to reimburse local governments and municipalities that lost money to big box stores in rulings by the Michigan Tax Tribunal. LaFave says what’s a good way to get a politician in Lansing to care about an Upper Peninsula problem? Make them pay for it!


LaFave says his colleagues will say they can’t afford it.

Currently, there’s a tax loophole that big box stores have been using to have their stores appraised as if they were dark and vacant. LaFave says the state should take ownership of the problem they’ve been unable to address. The bill is still about two weeks away from being introduced in the house.
