MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The Republican leader of the Wisconsin state Senate plans to propose moving to a flat income tax rate of 3.25%. Democratic Gov. Tony Evers has vowed to block the proposal planned for Friday. The conflict comes as both sides say they want to tap a state budget surplus to lower taxes. Details of Republican Senate Majority Leader Devin LeMahieu’s proposal was provided to The Associated Press ahead of its release. It would phase in a flat income tax rate by 2026. Income tax rates are currently split into four brackets.
