Taxpayers in southeast Wisconsin will stop paying for Miller Park at the end of the month.
The Southeast Wisconsin Professional Baseball Park District yesterday voted to end the point-one-percent sales tax in Milwaukee, Waukesha, Ozaukee, Washington and Racine counties on March 31st.
Taxpayers have been paying for the stadium since 1996. The tax has taken more than 600-million-dollars from taxpayers since then. Stadium district chairman Don Smiley says the vote to officially end the tax is making good on a nearly 25-year-old promise.
