Recently the Wisconsin State Journal ran an important piece describing the current tax debate in the Badger State. Gov. Walker has said he is interested in income tax repeal and already pushed through three major tax cuts during his term in office.
Governor Walker’s major challenger, Mary Burke has said, “My pledge is not to raise taxes overall and to make sure that Wisconsin taxes and fees are in line with other states.”
Clearly tax issues will be a hotly debated issue over the course of the gubernatorial campaign. At the request of the Wisconsin State Journal the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy provided data that powers a new interactive tax calculator that allows readers to answer the question “What’s the right tax mix for Wisconsin?”
