It has come to my attention that the city of Lansing may have taken taxes out of our sub pay benefits last year. If you were eligible to receive and were paid sub benefits during the lay off period in 2016, please make sure your tax preparer is aware of this.
Please share this information with co-workers that may not have seen it. It may only amount to a few dollars but every little bit counts!
