Paying Taxes

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin residents will pay nearly six and a-half (B) billion dollars in personal income taxes this fiscal year.

The record amount is the second largest source of tax dollars for covering state and local government programs. Property taxes bring in the most revenue -- at nearly eight (B) billion dollars this year.

As of last week, a record two-thirds of Wisconsin taxpayers had electronically filed their state income tax returns.

Of the more than two (M) million returns filed, 83 percent received refunds averaging 590 dollars.

About two-point-eight (M) million state income tax returns will be filed this year.
