Legislators surveys on Property Tax issue – Don’t throw it away!

Wisconsin citizens have been receiving surveys from their State Legislators on the Property Tax issue.  The ones we have seen make all kinds of claims such as – property taxes have gone sky high, hell is freezing over, elimination of the property tax will increase funds for schools, or it will help someone be able to afford a home.

What they don’t tell you – WISCONSIN’S PROPERTY TAX IS THE FORESTRY MILL TAX.  The owner of a $150,000 home pays $30/year  in forestry mill tax.  Take a look at your last property tax bill.  The amount listed on that bill as “State of Wisconsin” is your share of the forestry mill tax.

If you have received one of these surveys and you support keeping the Forestry Mill Tax – NOW is the time to return your survey stating that you support keeping the forestry mill tax and that you would like to visit with your legislator about this issue.

Please do not just throw your survey away – respond!  The fact that legislators are sending out surveys means that we are having an impact on this issue…but we need your continued input while the Joint Committee on Finance discusses this issue.

If you haven’t received a survey it is still important for you to weigh in with members of the Joint Committee on Finance.  WWOA’s  letter to the Joint Committee on Finance members went out this week.
