State Rep. Bill G.

Earlier this month, Schuette introduced legislation with the retroactive component, allowing people to obtain relief on their upcoming tax returns as opposed to waiting a year or more under initial Democrat proposals:
“House Republicans have heard from hard-working families who are feeling the sting of skyrocketing prices. We need to put money back in their pockets, now. That is why the House Republican bill allowed Michiganders to claim the tax credit this year. We can’t wait until 2024 or beyond to give people the financial relief they deserve right now.
