County Sales Tax To Remain In Brown County

A Brown County
judge has ruled against a group challenging the half-cent sales tax which went
into effect a little over two years ago. The Brown County Taxpayers Association
argued the tax is illegal due to the way the funds are being spent.  Judge John Zakowski issued a 32-page decision
saying the county is following state statutes. 
68 of Wisconsin’s
72 counties have a county-wide sales tax in effect. Manitowoc,
Racine, Waukesha
and Winnebago continue to operate without one.
