WPMCA testifies at informational hearing on excise taxes

WPMCA Director of Government Affairs Douglas Parrott and WPMCA Past Chairman Ken Kearns testified at the Assembly Committee Ways and Means informational hearing on excise taxes.

The committee has been holding a number of informational hearings on different taxes in the state tax code. On Thursday Parrott and Kearns explained to the committee how the state gas tax is collected and the role our industry plays in the collection. Kearns, who has stores in Wisconsin and in Illinois, explained how the collection process in Illinois is much more complicated for both the retailer and the state.
