Weekly Radio Address: John Macco on Tax Day 2019

Madison…Wisconsin State Representative John Macco (R-Ledgeview), Chairman of the Assembly Committee on Ways and Means, released the Weekly Radio Address on behalf of Wisconsin State Republicans.  


I’m John Macco, Chairman of the Assembly Committee on Ways and Means. 


Monday was Tax Day, everyone’s favorite day of the year. 


The good news is that over the last eight years, we’ve worked to lower taxes of hardworking Wisconsinites by $8 billion. 


We’ve invested in education and infrastructure, paid down debt and saved for the future. 


Wisconsin is historically strong but we didn’t get there by accident. 


Unfortunately, Governor Evers has proposed a budget that will raise your taxes by more than $1 billion. 


With Wisconsin working, now’s not the time to turn back the clock.  In fact, now is the time for comprehensive state tax reform. 


As chairman, I spent the last four years working to make our tax code low, fair and simple.  While people are seeing bigger paychecks and easier federal filings, Wisconsin is in a unique position to do the same. 


So visit our website at www.WIWaysandMeans.com to share your thoughts.  And I look forward to hearing your considerations on how we can make Wisconsin’s tax structure work for everyone. 


Happy Tax Day!
