Walker administration launches tax reform website

Posted: Wednesday, February 12, 2014 --- 6:30 a.m.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin residents can submit their tax reform ideas under a new website created by Gov. Scott Walker's administration.

Creation of the website, taxreform.wi.gov, comes as Walker's Revenue Department secretary and the lieutenant governor are holding meetings with business owners to gather ideas.

Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch says the website gives everyone a chance to share their thoughts.

The website includes videos from past roundtables in Beloit, Eau Claire, Superior, Green Bay, Platteville, La Crosse and Stevens Point. It also includes information about taxation in Wisconsin and other states.

Walker has floated the possibility of eliminating the state's income tax, a move that likely would result in a dramatic increase in sales taxes to offset the difference.
