Tax Hike Hits Snag

Tax Hike Hits Snag

Local sales taxes are not going up in Wisconsin.

The Republicans in the state legislature yesterday said they will not agree to Governor Evers’ plan to allow cities and counties with more than 30-thousand people to raise their local sales tax.

Assembly Speaker Robin Vos says there’s no way it’s going to happen. The governor’s proposal could have led to a one-percent sales tax increase if both a city and county agreed to raise their taxes. Vos and Senate Majority Leader Devin LeMahieu also said they’re going to significantly trim the governor’s proposed two-and-a-half-billion-dollar building plan.
