Tax Reform

My Record

When I entered office, our state was facing a $3.6 billion deficit, and hundreds of millions in unpaid bills. My priority was to make sure that we balanced the budget without raising taxes – and we were successful. We proved that you can balance a budget through reform and spending cuts – and we decreased property taxes for the first time in 12 years!

  • Act 10 – Long-term structural reform that paved the way for $2 billion in tax cuts

  • Property Taxes – I delivered two years of property tax cuts!

  • Manufacturing and Agriculture Tax Credit – Supported a bill that will eliminate most manufacturing and agriculture taxes over the next few years, and lead to job growth.

My Plans

My priority will continue to be putting more money back into the pockets of hardworking taxpayers because at the end of the day, you know how to spend it better than the government.

  • Property Tax Cuts – Wisconsin’s property tax burden is still too high. I will work to continue cutting property taxes.

  • Income Tax Cuts – I will work to flatten our income tax and lower tax rates for all taxpayers.

  • Business Taxes – Work to repeal Combined Reporting, and the Capital Gains Tax
