Lawmakers says income tax check-offs are out of control
A state lawmaker says the number of income tax check-offs, where you can donate part of your refund to charity, is getting out of control.
There are seven check-offs now, and you'll see two more in January.
Sen. Mark Miller, D-Monona, plans to introduce a bill to either reduce the check-offs, or get rid of them altogether.
They started 20 years ago, when tax filers could check a box to help protect endangered resources.
