Representative Welcomes Closure Of Dark Store Loophole

MADISON, WI (Ben Caxton) — A central Wisconsin representative is happy to see the closure of the dark store loophole in Governor Evers proposed budget. Raymond Neupert reports for Great Rivers News. “The loophole allows big-box retailers to argue that they should be paying their property taxes as if their stores are vacant, rather than active businesses. Representative Katrina Shankland is hoping that will change. `Hopefully, in that time, legislators will hear from their constituents on this issue. And they took a look at the results from all the referenda all over the state which passed overwhelmingly. It’s clear that people want us to do this and I hope that legislators follow suit.` If the loophole elimination survives debate in the legislature it would be eliminated when Governor Ever signs the budget sometime in the fall.”
