The Dark Store Loopholes will likely mean a property tax increase of 8% or hundreds of dollars more each year for the average Wisconsin homeowner in the coming years.
Wisconsin homeowners already bear a disproportionate share of almost 70% of the property tax burden statewide, and if the dark store loopholes are not closed, they will soon pay even more. (In 1970, Wisconsin homeowners only paid 50% of all property taxes in Wisconsin.)
Thanks to the Dark Store Loopholes, Big Box retailers use more and pay less for essential municipal services like police, fire and other emergency services than the average homeowner or small business.
