Kitchens optimistic on middle class tax cut

First District Representative Joel Kitchens is hopeful that Governor Tony Evers will work with Assembly Republicans to get a proposed middle-class tax cut passed soon.  A proposal announced by Republican legislators Thursday would use the state’s budget surplus to fund a $340 million tax relief for middle-class families.  Rep. Kitchens says he believes a compromise can be done without raising taxes on manufacturers and farmers.



 Governor Tony Evers in a press release Thursday says he is committed to cutting taxes for middle-class families without adding to Wisconsin’s budget deficit.  The plan to cut taxes for middle-class families would provide relief for 86 percent of taxpayers without adding to the deficit or relying on one-time funds.  Assembly Republicans are working with the Senate to finalize the tax cut legislation, which is expected to be introduced as early as next week.
