MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker says he’s confident Wisconsin and Minnesota will have a new tax reciprocity agreement in the next two months.
Walker says revenue officials from both states have been working on an agreement since January. A major hurdle on a new agreement was cleared this week when Wisconsin made its final tax reciprocity payment of nearly $60 million to Minnesota. The last agreement was terminated when Wisconsin’s payment was delayed.
Gov. Dayton has said he believes both states would benefit from a new agreement “that provides prompt payments to both states.” Wisconsin revenue Secretary Richard Chandler says both states have been working together to determine how many people cross the state border to work and what kind of payment should be made.
The St. Paul Pioneer Press says Walker made his comments during a stop in Hudson Wednesday.
