Last fall, Tony Evers said he didn’t plan on raising taxes. Now that he is governor, Tony Evers’ first budget proposes to hike taxes significantly.
The Evers budget includes an 8-cent-per-gallon hike in the gas tax. It would also index the gas tax so that automatic increases would occur in the future.
The budget also proposes to increase the capital gains tax and taxes on e-cigarettes, and to institute annual increases in property taxes.
