Milwaukee County Board Supervisors Propose Increasing the Sales Tax by 17 Percent!
Some members of the impotent Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors are suggesting raising the sales tax in Milwaukee County from the current 5.85 percent to a whopping 6.85 percent.
That's a 17 percent hike in the local sales tax.
The humorous part about this proposal?
They are going to claim that part of this hike will go toward 'tax relief.'
You just can't make this stuff up.
