Coalition recommends changes to Wisconsin taxes


MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A coalition of Wisconsin business, labor and policy groups says in a new report that the state should consider reforming its tax structure to focus more on economic growth.

  The idea is one of many included in the Wisconsin Way's Blueprint for Change report.

  The report will provide a basis for a series of meetings next year that will generate actual recommendations for policy makers and others.

  The report suggests a tax shift that would reduce property and income taxes and rely more on sales taxes and user fees.

  Members of the coalition include the state's biggest teachers union and groups representing local governments, road builders and real estate agents.

  The report is the result of two years of town hall meetings.
