Wiley blasts Doyle’s plan to raise property taxes
New property tax proposal will loosen property tax cap

MADISON – Just weeks after announcing a $1.25 sales tax increase, Governor Doyle revealed yet another plan to reach into taxpayers’ pocketbooks – by increasing property taxes. While speaking to the media Tuesday, Doyle said his new property tax cap proposal will be looser than previous years because those who tax “need a little more room than they’ve had the past couple years.”

“First it was the cigarette tax and now Doyle wants help filling his $1.6 billion budget hole by sticking it to property tax payers,” said Rick Wiley, Executive Director of the Republican Party of Wisconsin. “Wisconsin is already one of the highest taxed states in the nation, but instead of keeping his campaign promise to hold the line on taxes, Doyle is joining forces with Senate Democrats to increase every tax imaginable.”

While Doyle has continually taken credit for freezing property taxes, taxes have risen consistently under Doyle’s watch. A year after his property tax freeze fraud, Wisconsin’s property taxes went up 2.3 percent and are expected to go up another 3.3 percent the second year.

Still think he deserved to be re-elected?

Thanks Ginny!
