MADISON – Governor Scott Walker released the following statement today after the Wisconsin State Legislature’s Joint Finance Committee voted to eliminate the state portion of the property tax levy. The provision was included in Governor Walker’s Executive Budget proposal. 

“We are eliminating an entire tax. Once passed in the budget and signed into law, there will be no state property tax collected for the first time since 1931. I applaud the members of the Legislature’s Joint Finance Committee for supporting tax reform and relief!”
