A ‘yes’ vote on the Proposal 1 will eliminate the double taxation of small businesses, create a stable funding source for essential local government services, and best of all, will not raise taxes on individuals or businesses. - David C. Rhoa.

Kalamazoo, MI (PRWEB) June 30, 2014

Lake Michigan Mailers, Inc. announced today its support for Proposal 1 that will appear on Michigan’s August 5th ballot.

Headquartered in Kalamazoo, Michigan Lake Michigan Mailers is a leading provider of document management, mail assembly, mail processing, presorting, data management, digital marketing and distribution services to companies, schools, colleges and universities, health care providers, governmental entities and organizations throughout the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Europe, and Australia.

“Michigan’s current Personal Property Tax (PPT) serves a deterrent to growth for Michigan’s small business community and creates an inconsistent funding source for needed local government services such as police and fire protection,” said David C. Rhoa, president of Lake Michigan Mailers, Inc. “Unlike most of our neighboring states, Michigan’s Personal Property Tax creates a life-time tax liability for any small business that buys equipment or even office furniture. Such a liability makes Michigan less competitive with other states in attracting and growing business,” said Rhoa. “A ‘yes’ vote on the Proposal 1 will eliminate the double taxation of small businesses, create a stable funding source for essential local government services, and best of all, will not raise taxes on individuals or businesses,” Rhoa continued.

Support for a “YES” vote on Proposal 1 is wide and deep including all major business associations in Michigan, as well as, virtually all associations representing the needs of local governments and service personnel including Michigan Association of Police Chiefs, Michigan Association of Fire Chiefs, Michigan Municipal League, and Michigan Towhships Association.
