MADISON, Wis. — Americans for Prosperity Wisconsin released the following statement in response to Representative Dale Kooyenga‘s proposal to repeal the alternative minimum tax:

“Americans for Prosperity is excited by Rep. Kooyenga’s tax reform proposals,” said Eric Bott, the State Director of Americans for Prosperity Wisconsin.

“It’s just not right that Wisconsin taxpayers have to comply with two separate income tax codes. This proposal would help entrepreneurs by repealing the small business tax and lighten families tax burden by reducing the marriage penalty. Reforming our tax code is exactly the type of fiscally responsible policy that our 125,000 activists across the state expect from Madison. Rep. Kooyenga is once again proving himself to be a champion of Wisconsin taxpayers and we hope lawmakers will get behind him at once.”
