Bureau says property taxes made bigger jump last year
Analysts both inside and outside of state government say property taxes probably won't go up as much in December as they did last year.
The Legislative Fiscal Bureau said Monday the average Wisconsin house valued at $170,000 paid just more than $2,800 in local taxes.
That's $105 more than the year before or 3.8 percent. Gov. Jim Doyle's budget office expects the increase to be more like 1 percent this year.
