Comments (0) 2:30 PM posted by admin |

Tonight and Wednesday mark the last two Town Hall meetings on the fabled City Income Tax. At least they fixed the press release and tried not to be so blatantly biased this time around. Original 17 September, 2007 Press Release

On August 14, 2007, Ypsilanti City Council approved ballot language allowing for an income tax which would impose an annual income tax rate of 1% annually on corporations and resident individuals, and 0.5% annually on non-resident individuals who are employed within the city. The purpose of the city income tax is to increase revenue and expand the tax base. The City of Ypsilanti, will be providing three City Income Tax Informational Town Hall meetings scheduled for the following times and locations:

October 3, 2007
Perry School

1555 W. Cross St.
7:00pm-9:00pm

October 24, 2007
Adams School
503 Oak St.
7:00pm-9:00pm

Professor Joe Ohren from Eastern Michigan University will be moderating these two hour sessions. The agenda will consist of a brief factual presentation and then one and half hours of a question and answer session. The purpose of these meetings is to provide information about the City’s request for an Income Tax (Ed. note: Emphasis, mine.). This proposal will appear on the November 6, 2007 ballot.
