Wisconsin state Senate set to vote on property tax bill


MADISON, Wisconsin (WXOW) - The Wisconsin state Senate is set to vote Tuesday on Governor Walker's proposed property and income tax cut.

The proposal would reduce property taxes on a median-valued home by a $131.

Walker says it would also save the typical taxpayer $46.

He states, "by 2018, I'd like to have the levy even lower than it is at the end of 2014...we've seen in the past one of the biggest barriers to people buying new homes, 1st time home buyers, has been the high cost of property taxes in communities in this state."

Democratic critics argue that the tax cuts don't benefit the middle class and that surplus dollars should focus on funding worker training programs.
