56th Assembly District Update: March 6, 2024

Evers Vetoes Tax-Free Retirement

Despite repeated opportunities provided by Legislative Republicans, Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers refuses to support tax cuts that directly benefit the middle class.

In mid-February, Legislative Republicans passed legislation to enact what has come to be called a tax-free retirement.  The bill was a tax cut that could have increased the tax exemption for retirement income up to $150,000.  Last Friday, Governor Evers vetoed that retirement tax cut.  Republicans in the Legislature have fought for years to reduce taxes, but this veto is going to be the most hurtful for our retirees.

On that same day, Governor Evers also vetoed tax cuts for the middle class and married couples.

Despite repeated opportunities provided by Legislative Republicans, Governor Evers refuses to support tax cuts that directly benefit the middle class.

What’s more concerning is the Governor’s continued disregard for Wisconsin’s seniors, who would have gained significant relief from the proposed tax cut. By ignoring their needs and prioritizing political posturing over practical solutions, Governor Evers is failing to fulfill his promise to return the surplus to Wisconsin’s families and seniors.
