Wisconsin’s Double Taxation Needs to Change

In a follow-up to a story we ran March 10, the WausauDailyHerald.com confirms that Wausau Homes of Wisconsin does not benefit from a tax exemption law proposed by Governor Scott Walker.  The earlier report had stated Wausau Homes donated $25,000 to the governor’s campaign, and in return received an exemption from sales and other taxes on homes sold in Wisconsin and delivered out of state.  Ross Kinzler, executive director of the Wisconsin Housing Alliance (WHA), confirms Wausau Homes has never been taxed in two states, because they deliver their own product out of state and are therefore not subject to Wisconsin taxes.  If a retailer of manufactured homes in Wisconsin sells a home to someone in another state, this may open the door for added taxes.  The department of revenue had suggested the law be changed because of the double taxation provision.
