Madison, WI – Senator Duey Stroebel (R-Cedarburg) released the following statement after the press conference releasing the State Senate budget position:
Today, the State Senate released a budget that repeals three taxes including the state forestry mill tax, alternative minimum tax, and the personal property tax.
The personal property tax is a burdensome tax on Main Street Wisconsin created in the 1840s. This repeal is long overdue.
The Republican focus should be to repeal taxes rather than raise taxes. In the end, Republicans are looking to improve our tax rankings. These major tax policy changes will likely continue to improve Wisconsin’s Tax Foundation ranking.
