RACINE — The City Council on Wednesday is expected to consider a resolution against a state proposal to eliminate the personal property tax businesses across the state pay on equipment they own. The legislation would eliminate both the personal property tax and payments local governments receive from the state to make up for a 1999 move that exempted businesses from having to pay the tax on computer equipment. Eliminating the tax and the aid payments would mean a loss of revenue to cities and other local governments of more than $373 million annually – money that could only be made up by shifting more of the property tax burden to homeowners, states the... That analysis indicates taxes on the average Wisconsin home would go up 2. 7 percent, or $80 to $3,006, to make up for the reduced tax revenue without cutting services. The shift would leave homeowners, who on average already pay 68. 2 percent of the statewide property tax levy, shouldering about 70. 3 percent of the cost, according to the fiscal bureau. In Racine, eliminating the tax would result in $1. 74 million of the city’s property tax levy being shifted to residential homeowners, the city’s resolution states, resulting in an estimated tax rate increase of about 56 cents per $1,000 of...
