Flat Tax Falls Flat At Governors Feet

Flat Tax Falls Flat At Governors Feet

Governor Tony Evers said this week he’ll veto the upcoming state budget of the Republican-controlled Legislature if it includes a flat tax. 

GOP lawmakers have said they want Wisconsin to transition to a three-point-25 percent income tax for all income levels.  The Democratic governor said he’s considering either a line-item veto or vetoing the entire budget if the flat tax is part of it.  Evers said he believes the current progressive tax system is a good one and that the state doesn’t provide what he called “some extraordinary large tax cut” to the wealthiest Wisconsinites.
