Gov. Tony Evers pledged in October 2018, the month before the election, that low- and middle-income taxpayers would get a break under his administration.
He said on his campaign website that "everyone with annual incomes up to $100,000 would receive a 10% tax cut."
The actual proposal in his first budget lines up, according to the state's nonpartisan Legislative Fiscal Bureau. In its analysis, the agency said a "Family and Individual Reinvestment" credit would be available to all taxpayers with a state adjusted gross income below $100,000, or below $150,000 if married filing jointly.
The credit would reduce tax liability by 10 percent or $100, whichever is greater. So it actually extends the promise by establishing a minimum payout.
This remains just a proposal, however, with the budget awaiting action in the GOP-controlled Legislature, we rate this promise In the Works.
