COST Comments & Testimony

Testimony re. Wisconsin Budget Bills A.B. 56 and S.B. 59 – IRC Sec. 163(j) and Marketplace Provider Provisions

COST opposes the application of Internal Revenue Code (IRC) Sec. 163(j) to Wisconsin’s income tax. COST recommends changes to A.B. 56 & S.B. 59 marketplace provider provisions. COST also recommends the allowance of a Wisconsin dividend received deduction when a foreign subsidiary elects to be taxed as a corporation (federal “check the box” rule).
