State Tax Collections Projected Lower

(Wisconsin Radio Network)

Wisconsin tax collections are projected to come in lower
than expected. That means Governor Evers and state lawmakers will have less
money to work with as they hash out the state budget over the coming months.
The Legislature’s non-partisan budget office announced Wednesday that projected
new revenues through mid-2021 will about one-point-eight billion dollars.
That’s 282-million dollars less than was forecast in November. Evers is to
introduce his budget proposal in late February.
