A new Michigan tax on services was due to go into effect December 2007, but was subsequently cancelled.


The Michigan Services Tax Repeal did not appear on the November 4, 2008 statewide ballot as an legislatively-referred state statute. The measure called for the rejection of a 6% tax on services passed by the Michigan Legislature in October of 2007. Despite not appearing on the ballot, the effort was strong enough to force the legislature into repealing the tax only two months after its passage.
