Out-of-state taxpayers account for $250 million in revenue

Out-of-state retailers will provide more than $250 million in sales taxes, lowering the average taxpayer’s share by about $137, according to a release from Gov. Tony Evers’ office.

The revenue collected by the Wisconsin Department of Revenue for the 12 months ending Sept. 30 amounts to more than three times that of the previous year. The 2019 Wisconsin Act 10 legislation ensures the money is distributed equally among both wealthy and middle-income taxpayers.
