State Senator Mary Lazich (R-New Berlin) represents parts of four counties: Milwaukee, Waukesha, Racine, and Walworth. Her Senate District 28 includes New Berlin, Franklin, Greendale, Hales Corners, Muskego, Waterford, Big Bend, the town of Vernon and parts of Greenfield, East Troy, and Mukwonago. Senator Lazich has been in the Legislature for more than a decade. She considers herself a tireless crusader for lower taxes, reduced spending and smaller government.
Tax Freedom Day is the day Americans will have earned enough money to pay this year’s tax obligations at the federal, state and local levels.
Tax Freedom Day in Wisconsin will also fall on April 13, 2009. That compares to last year’s Tax Freedom day of April 21, 2008.
If that sounds like good news, it depends on your view. Wisconsin’s 2008 Tax Freedom Day was the 14th worst in the country. This year’s Tax Freedom Day is the 12th worst of all the states.
