Wisconsin Homeowners Save on Property Tax Bills

Doyle: Typical homeowner will pay $2 less in property taxes

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The typical homeowner in Wisconsin will have a couple bucks extra after paying property tax bills that arrive in December.

An analysis released by Governor Jim Doyle's budget office today says the report says the property tax bill on a median value home of 164-thousand dollars will drop two dollars. Last year the bill increased by 24 dollars.

Actual bills will vary due to local property taxes and individual home values.

The report was issued just two days before Doyle was to debate his Republican challenger Mark Green. The subject of that debate was taxes and the economy.

Green's campaign spokesman had no immediate comment on the report's release.
