Michigan is the 16th most expensive state when it comes to how much in profits businesses put toward taxes. That’s according to an annual study released Monday. This is a drop from last year’s ranking of 12th.


Washtenaw County officials expect another drop in delinquent property taxes this year.  Later this week, county commissioners are expected to approve an annual resolution to establish the delinquent tax revolving fund. Hear more from WEMU's Andrew Cluley.

Washtenaw County's Treasurer Cathy McClary says increases in home sales and prices are another sign of economic recovery, but she says it won't immediately translate into more funds for local governments.  WEMU's Andrew Cluley explains why.
