Chart of the Day: $4.7 Billion Dollars of Tax Relief Since 2011

April 18, 2016

Today’s chart of the day shows the various ways Governor Walker has reduced your tax burden over the past five years.

The largest reduction was the result of the effort in 2013 to lower everyone’s taxes and flatten the tax code, which has saved nearly $1.3 billion.

In total, Governor Walker and the legislature have saved Wisconsin taxpayers over $4.7 billion since 2011.

This much tax relief almost makes tax day bearable. Almost.
