Wisconsin sales tax rate changes, April 2017
- Oct 13, 2016 | Gail Cole
A new local sales and use tax will take effect in Kewaunee County, Wisconsin on April 1, 2017. Most counties in the state already levy the local tax; fewer than ten, including Kewaunee County, currently do not.
The 0.5% tax was approved by the Kewaunee County Board in a 15-4 vote. It was deemed necessary because the county has struggled with diminishing funds since the 2013 closure of the Kewaunee Power Station. The nuclear plan had generated more than $700,000 in annual tax revenue for the county.
Additional information about local taxes is available through the Wisconsin Department of Revenue.
