Two state lawmakers are sponsoring a bill that would repeal the personal property tax in Wisconsin. Senator Brad Pfaff of Onalaska and Representative Robyn Vining of Wauwatosa say their proposal would greatly assist local businesses while holding municipalities harmless. Vining said the goal of eliminating the personal property has been supported by both Democrats and Republicans. Pfaff says the pandemic has created unprecedented challenges for small businesses and this will help save money and be more competitive. Funds preserved in the state budget would be used to compensate local governments for losses incurred by getting rid of the property tax.
