The Brown County Taxpayers Association (BCTA) has filed suit in Brown County circuit court seeking to stop the recently imposed 0.5% county sales tax. The suit was filed Tuesday January 2nd by the Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty (WILL) on behalf of the BCTA.

Response to County Executive Streckenbach’s press conference this morning 1/8/18

Brown County does not “have to” spend $147 million in additional projects over the next 6 years, so Brown County would not “have to” raise property taxes to pay for them. County Executive Streckenbach this morning stated that the Brown County taxpayer will have to pay $24M more in property taxes if the BCTA prevails in this litigation. How do you reconcile that against the approximate $130M in additional taxes - a sales tax in this case - that it will cost that same taxpayer over the next six years?
