What do you know about the Dark Stores tax loophole? Or about the Walgreens WI Supreme Court decision? Both of these loopholes affect the property tax revenue that the city collects from retailers, and we all need to be informed about how this issue affects us.

Citizens in Outagamie County will be able to vote on an advisory referendum about the Dark Stores tax loophole in the November election. Your LWV-Appleton is here to provide information so that you can cast an informed vote on November 6!

Curt Witynski, Deputy Director of the League of Wisconsin Municipalities will speak about the Dark Stores tax loophole. Curt manages the LWM’s lobbying program, including representing the League regarding legislation, and was previously the LWM’s Legal Counsel. Deann Brosman, City Assessor for Appleton, will join Curt to discuss local impacts of the Dark Stores loophole.

As always, 5:00 to 5:30 will be an opportunity to network and socialize, and the program runs from 5:30 to 6:30. Our gracious host, Copper Rock Coffee Co. has provided the venue at no charge, so please feel free to buy food and beverages and enjoy throughout the meeting!
