Walker administration begins talks on tax reform

Posted Thursday, December 19, 2013 --- 9:32 a.m.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker's administration is taking a look at Wisconsin's tax code, including possible elimination of the state income tax.

Walker has said previously that he's interested in getting rid of the income tax.

But spokesman Tom Evenson told the Wisconsin State Journal that it is just one idea that the governor is considering as he looks to reduce the state's overall tax burden.

Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch and Department of Revenue secretary Rick Chandler are holding invitation-only discussions about tax reform around the state at the governor's request. Kleefisch's spokesman Casey Himebauch says about 25 people attended a meeting last week in Beloit.
