Governor Tony Evers spending plan is going to raise property taxes in the state.
But a new report says property taxes are also set to rise without his budget becoming law. The Legislative Fiscal Bureau yesterday said Governor Evers’ budget would take the state property tax bill on the average 197-thousand-dollar home to over 33-hundred dollars. LFB says that’s not as much as taxes would jump under the current spending plan. Republican lawmakers in Madison, however, want to spend part of the state’s state’s stimulus money on a property tax rebate. Governor Evers has promised to veto that idea.
