The Time is Now for Tax Relief
AFP-Wisconsin calls for additional tax relief following new revenue estimates
Madison… The Legislative Fiscal Bureau released updated tax revenue estimates that show an additional $575 million dollars collected by the state. AFP State Director Luke Hilgemann called for substantial tax relief in the following statement:
“It’s Working for Wisconsin and now is the time for tax relief,” said Hilgemann. “The Governor and Legislature made tough choices two years ago to get our budget back on track and the results are better than ever anticipated. Now the Legislature needs to do the right thing and give the money back to the people who have worked so hard, the taxpayers.”
“It would be simply irresponsible to do anything with this additional revenue other than return it to the people of Wisconsin. We can’t give into the voices who will want to spend this additional money on growing the government. Over 500 AFP activists have already e-mailed their legislators calling for tax relief. Thousands more will have their voices heard to ensure this money goes back to the people. This is a matter of fairness.”
