ELIMINATED FORESTRY MILL TAX/STATE PROPERTY TAX AND PERSONAL PROPERTY TAX (FALL 2017)

When we see an opportunity to lower the tax burden for Wisconsin families, we take that fight to the state capitol, just like we did to eliminate:

• Forestry Mill Tax/state property tax -WBA members lobbied in favor of Governor Scott Walker’s provision as part of our annual “Advocacy Day at the Capitol” in early 2017.

• Personal property tax -We worked with a diverse coalition of business groups as an addition to the state budget in the spring of 2017.

The total elimination of these taxes will give homeowners and small business owners more money in their pockets to spend on major home improvements or building a new home.
