Statement from Governor Scott Walker: 

The hardworking taxpayers in Wisconsin are the big winners today.  Thanks to the members of the state Assembly for the bipartisan vote.  A typical homeowner will see a $100 reduction in property taxes this year.  With this measure, we've reduced taxes by $2 billion since I took office.

On top of this plan, a typical working family in Wisconsin will see an extra $522 in their paychecks because of our withholding reforms.  That's real money!

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The Wisconsin Assembly has passed Gov. Scott Walker's $504 million tax cut plan.

The chamber approved the bill 61-35 Tuesday. The Senate passed it earlier this month; Assembly approval sends the bill onto to Walker for his signature.

Walker wants to use a portion of the state's projected $977 million surplus to fund property and income tax cuts. He introduced a bill in January that would send $406 million to technical colleges to reduce their property tax hit and cut income taxes by $98 million by reducing the lowest bracket from 4.4 percent to 4 percent.

The end result would be a $131 reduction a median home's tax bill this December and $46 in annual income tax savings for the average worker
