Wisconsin property tax cut vote
The Wisconsin state Senate will get the first crack at Gov. Scott Walker's $100 million property tax cut proposal.
The Senate is scheduled to take up the measure in a special session Tuesday. The bill is up for a public hearing and vote Tuesday morning in the Legislature's budget-writing Joint Finance Committee.
The plan is projected to cut property taxes on a median-valued home by $13 this year. Next year, taxes would drop $20 compared to what they would be without the $100 million cut.
Even under the cut, property taxes are still projected to increase by $11 -- from $2,943 to $2,954 -- in two years for the typical home. The actual amount people pay varies widely across the state.
