MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Republicans who control the Wisconsin Legislature are considering a property tax cut proposal that would be introduced early in 2020.
That's according to Republican Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald. He said at a news conference Friday that details, including the size of the cut, were still being worked out.
Discussion of a property tax cut comes in the wake of homeowners receiving tax bills in December.
The nonpartisan Wisconsin Policy Forum said in a report earlier this week that those bills could amount to the largest property tax increase in 10 years.
