What is different:
The MBT shifts some of the burden away from manufacturers and onto the fast-growing service sector, which includes insurance companies, restaurants, travel agencies, and accounting firms. The MBT relies more on a firm's profits to calculate taxes.
In addition, the MBT significantly cut the personal property tax on equipment that businesses paid under the SBT. That helped manufacturers and large commercial businesses.
