- Talk of cutting taxes in Wisconsin grows as we head into an election year.The ideas vary widely.They include everything from a sales tax holiday to eliminating the state income tax. Whether anything will change NEXT year will depend on the updated tax collection estimates released in mid-January.
Governor Scott Walker has floated the idea of eliminating the income tax, but it's been met with a lukewarm reception at best. Republican Assembly Speaker Robin Voss says that would be a difficult change to make. He's more interested in a sales tax holiday for back to school purchases. Voss says any tax cut depends on what tax collections look like in that January report.(Copyright 2013 Associated Press - All Rights Reserved)
