Taxpayers Association Appeal of GR Income Tax Hike Denied
Posted Saturday, March 22nd 2014 @ 9am  by WOOD Radio News Team

Michigan's Appeals Courts judges reportedly ignored the central question in the Grand Rapids Taxpayers Association's appeal to stop the May income tax "streets tax" vote.

Published reports say the Appeals Court decided that the GRTA plaintiff had no "standing" to make the challenge. 

The Association had argued that the city government had missed the deadline for putting the question on that ballot, a legal deadline that city officials asserted did not apply to them.

City Hall will ask voters for a 15-year long extension of a temporary city income tax hike, promising to build better streets with the money.    We have not heard if the Association will appeal to the Supreme Court.
