Property Tax Cut
MADISON, Wis. (AP) – The Wisconsin Legislature’s budget committee has unanimously approved Gov. Scott Walker’s $100 million property tax cut proposal. Tuesday’s bipartisan 16-0 vote comes just before the full Senate is to take up the measure. The Assembly was scheduled to take it up Thursday. Walker has said he wants to sign it into law by the end of the week. The tax cut is scheduled to take effect this year. It is estimated to lower property taxes on the typical home by $13 this year and $20 next year. The actual amount people pay varies widely across the state. No one testified for or against the measure, although four registered in support. Even though Democrats voted for it, they said the savings need to be put into perspective.
