Detroit News Editorial Reaches Same Conclusion as Mackinac

The Center Creates a Media Storm on the County Tax Shift Bill

The Mackinac Center's analysis of the proposal for early payment of county property taxes is at the epicenter of the debate over whether the plan constitutes a tax increase. The Center's critique has appeared in many outlets, but was featured prominently in the Sept. 15 Detroit News, both in a front-page story and in an op-ed by the Center's Jack McHugh.

By an overwhelming margin, respondents to a Detroit News "CyberSurvey" agree with the Center that the proposed shift is a tax hike, as does the editorial cartoon. The e-mails posted at the CyberSurvey site are full of colorful insights.
