Two Northwoods legislators have differing opinions on the repeal of the state's Forestry Mill tax.
The tax is the state's only property tax. Governor Walker has proposed eliminating the Mill Tax and replacing it with money from the state spending.
Authorized in 1924, this revenue source has supported forestry programs that facilitated the successful recovery from the 'cut over time' when there was no Northwoods as we have today.
In 2014, the tax was estimated to be about $25 dollars for a $150,000 home.
