Property tax relief plan

MADISON — Property taxes on the typical Wisconsin home are projected to decrease $1 on bills mailed this December and $2 next year.

The nonpartisan Legislative Fiscal Bureau released a new estimate Monday, July 27th on property taxes for a home valued at just over $154,000 based on the state budget recently signed by Gov. Scott Walker.

Walker’s original budget proposal would have resulted in a $10 decrease in property taxes over the two years. But after changes made by the Legislature, and using updated tax figures, the new estimate projects property taxes to decline just $3 over the next two years.

The estimate looks at the state as a whole, but individual tax bills will vary based on a variety of factors including value of the home and local tax levels.

    Misleading headline. State property taxes will be down. Local taxes will be markedly up due to funding shortfalls from the state.
