Schedule set for open citizen comment talks

CAPITOL CONNECTION
Joe Leibham  9th Senatorial District

As the legislative session starts again for 2014, I am pleased to announce that I will be hosting a set of Constituent Input Sessions for residents of the 9th Senate District in Sheboygan, Chilton and Manitowoc on Saturday, February 8, 2014.

The purpose of these Input Sessions is to receive citizen input on legislation we are working on as the 2013-2014 Legislative session continues. As I continue my legislative efforts and review and deliberate the ideas brought forward by other legislators, it is important that I hear from my constituents.

I also enjoy answering questions and receiving input on ways that the residents of the 9th Senate District are interacting with their state government. If you have any questions, concerns or ideas, I encourage you to attend one of the sessions below to share your input or questions with me.

Tax Holidays in August and November ~

Under this bill, annually, for the two-day period beginning on the first Saturday in August and ending on the following Sunday, the sales of the following “back to school” items are exempt from the sales tax and the use tax:

1. An item of clothing, not including clothing accessories, if the sales price of any single item is no more than $75.

2. A computer purchased by the consumer for the consumer’s personal use, if the sales price of the computer is no more than $2,000.

3. School computer supplies, if the sales price of any single item is no more than $250.

4. School instructional materials, if the sales price of any single item is no more than $300.

5. School supplies, if the sales price of any single item is no more than $75.

The bill also provides that, annually, for the two-day period beginning on the first Saturday in November and ending on the following Sunday, the sales of Energy Star products purchased by a consumer for the consumer’s personal use are exempt from the sales tax and the use tax.

The bill provides, however, that the exemptions for August and November do not apply in any year in which the Department of Revenue determines, by May 1, that the state’s financial situation would make implementation of the exemptions imprudent.
