A bill sponsored by 64th District Rep. Julie Alexander was signed into law Wednesday. The Bill clarifies that dental prosthetics like crowns, dentures, and bridges are exempt from the Michigan sales tax. Medical prosthetics are all exempt from the tax and sales tax has not been charged for dental prosthetics for decades, but a recent Treasury review of law changes suggested that dental devices should be subject to the tax.
Julie Alexander said “This law makes dental work more affordable and improves health care across Michigan. I am pleased to have played a key role in clarifying this law and ensuring the sales tax will not be charged on dental prosthetics.”
A small business owner from Jackson was responsible for bringing the issue to Alexander’s attention.
