Governor to sign tax cut bill Submitted: 03/24/2014
Madison - Half a billion dollars in tax cuts will become law today. Governor Scott Walker will sign his tax cut bill at a farm in Shawano County. He'll sign the legislation at Horsens Homestead Farms in Cecil. The bill gives a large chunk of the state's 977-million dollar surplus to property and income tax cuts. It sends 406-million to technical colleges to reduce their property tax hit. Income taxes will be cut by nearly 99-million. For taxpayers, the measure means a 131-dollar tax reduction for a typical home. The average worker will save 46-dollars in annual income taxes. Democrats criticized the bill as an election year gimmick. Walker faces re-election in November. (Copyright 2014 Associated Press - All Rights Reserved)
