Kenosha County leaders support referendum that would close "dark stores" loophole
KENOSHA COUNTY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Residents in Kenosha County will cast their votes on the November ballot to voice their thoughts on proposed legislation to close the so-called "dark stores" loophole.
County leaders held an event Monday in support of the referendum.
"Without this bill passing in the state legislature, it will shift the shaft to everybody who pays property taxes, except those who try to get through this loophole. The loophole needs to be taken care of on multiple levels and it needs to be taken care of completely," said Kenosha County Executive Jim Kreuser.
The referendum on the ballot is advisory, meaning the outcome won't change any laws but legislators can use the outcome to inform their decisions.
