On Tuesday morning, Governor Scott Walker signed the “Veterans Organization Tax Exemption” bill into law, while officers from the Wisconsin American Legion and Veterans of Foreign Wars stood by his side. Lakeshore Representatives Andre Jacque and Devin LeMauhieu spearheaded the bill, which exempts taxation on property and otherwise taxable services sold to state veteran service organizations. Jacque was elated to see the bill pass, saying the state will “finally provide equitable treatment among non-profit organizations by providing Wisconsin’s veterans’ service organizations the same Wisconsin sales and use tax exemption granted to other charitable organizations.”
