Walker says any new sales tax would be offset with cuts

Madison (AP) – Gov. Scott Walker says any additional sales tax the state collects from online sales will be offset with undetermined tax reductions.

Walker commented Monday after the U.S. Supreme Court last week said states can collect sales taxes on internet sales where online retailers are based in other states. That could bring in as much as $187 million more per-year to the state.

Walker says "one way or the other we’d want to get that back to the hardworking taxpayers."

Walker’s Revenue Secretary Rick Chandler says his department is still studying the ruling to determine just how much additional money the state may collect, given that not everyone will pay the tax and there may be some exemptions for small sellers.

Chandler says he anticipates it being an issue for the Legislature to tackle in 2019.
