Michigan Consumer Tax Laws

The majority of states collect sales tax, in addition to consumption taxes on products such as tobacco, gasoline, gambling, and alcoholic beverages. Michigan's consumer tax laws levy a 6 percent sales tax and a 19 percent tax on gross casino revenues. Michigan also has one of the highest gasoline tax rates, at 39.3 cents per gallon.

The current consumer tax rates in Michigan are listed below. See FindLaw's Tax Law section for more information.

Sales Tax 6%; §205.52
Cigarette Tax $2.00 per pack of 20 cigarettes; §§205.427
Gasoline Tax per Gallon 39.3¢ §§207.1008
Use Tax 6% §205.93
Liquor Tax Beer $6.30 per barrel; Wine <16% 13.5¢ per liter, >16% 20¢ per liter; Spirits off-sale 13.85% of retail selling price, on-sale 12% of retail selling price §§436.1409; 436.2203; 436.2205
Gambling Tax 19% of gross revenue of casino §432.213

Here the term "mills" means one one-thousandth of a dollar, so 10 mills = 10 one-thousandths of a dollar, or .01.
