Gov. Rick Snyder made multiple changes to individuals’ tax forms. Most were eliminations of certain exemptions, deductions, non-refundable and refundable credits. “It is going to affect the people and the credits that they would normally qualify for,” said Pamela Robedeau, previously a tax accountant and now a receptionist at Liberty Tax Services in Lansing Township.

Among the changes are how much of a credit is given for having children. Snyder has eliminated the $600 credit for children under 18. He has also eliminated the credit to families who paid for adoptions.
