With tax bills arriving at homes across the state, Gov. Scott Walker on Monday touted the elimination of the state portion of the property tax.
Walker, running for his third full term next year, has made property tax relief the centerpiece of his political message.
“For the first time since 1931, there is no state property tax bill being collected,” Walker said.
State property taxes took up a small portion of a homeowner’s tax bill. Walker signed the Legislature’s budget that eliminated the state’s $89 million property tax used for forestry programs.
