I have always believed in a fair and simple tax code that rewards taxpayers not tax collectors. Since taking office in 2011, we have simplified our tax code by reducing rates, condensing brackets, removing loopholes, and eliminating nineteen different tax credits.
We have delivered immediate relief to families by reducing the marriage penalty and lowering property taxes. In fact, property taxes are lower today than they were in 2010.
We have made measurable progress toward simplifying the tax code in Wisconsin but our work is not done. Wisconsin’s taxes are still high. I will continue to fight for the pro-growth tax policies that have resulted in Wisconsin’s economic success.
