Some state Senators think sales tax holiday is too gimmicky

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - At least some Wisconsin senators believe a sales tax holiday for back to school items is too much of a gimmick.  

GOP Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald says some of his colleagues would rather see some other type of tax relief for next year. Others said the state should keep whatever surplus it builds, to make sure the government is doing well financially when it's time to write the 2015 budget.  

Fitzgerald says there's a concern that the state's structural deficit -- current obligations to be paid for in 2015 -- is getting higher.  

Last week, Assembly Speaker Robin Vos revived the idea of a sales tax holiday for back to school items, but only if the state's next financial report in mid-January is favorable.  

Vos said majority Republicans want to provide small types of tax relief in advance of the 2015 budget -- when a major tax reform could be considered.
