Michigan had the 12th best overall business tax climate in 2017. The state ranks better than average compared to “Top Ten” and peer states.
What It Is: Rankings are based on the overall tax index and component tax indices (corporate tax, individual income tax, sales tax, unemployment insurance tax, and property tax) (10=most favorable, 0= least favorable).
Why It Matters: These measures indicate how attractive a state might be to both businesses and individuals in terms of common tax burdens.
Note: Data for corporate and overall business tax climate rankings use different indices.
