Wisconsin residents and businesses paid a record $56.5 billion in taxes and fees this year.
The Wisconsin Taxpayers Alliance says that's a 10 percent increase from last year and the biggest jump in more than two decades.
But that doesn't mean taxes were raised without people knowing. The alliance director says an increase like this usually happens whenever the economy comes out of a recession.
Still he says there's some cause for concern, taxes claimed 32 percent of personal income making Wisconsin the fifth highest taxed state.
