The Wisconsin Taxpayers Alliance report says net property taxes statewide are increasing seven tenths of a percent. That is up from two-tenths of a percent increase last year, but less than the 2.8 percent and 4.2 percent increases from the two previous years.

Our property taxes are the ninth highest, income taxes are 12th highest, and the state sales tax is 35th highest in the nation.
