TEI Supports Federal Conformity Legislation in Wisconsin

On October 5, 2011, Tax Executives Institute submitted the following comments to key leaders of the Wisconsin legislature, endorsing legislation to conform Wisconsin's tax law to federal provisions relating to the income tax exclusion for employer-provided health care insurance, which were changed by the 2010 health care reform law.

The comments were prepared under the aegis of TEI's State and Local Tax Committee, whose chair is Linda H. Dickens of Texas Instruments Incorporated. Contributing substantially were two members of the Wisconsin Chapter - Victor Ledesma of Kimberly-Clark Corporation and Carita R. Twinem of Spectrum Brands, Inc. Daniel B. De Jong, TEI Tax Counsel, serves as legal staff liaison to the State and Local Tax Committee and coordinated the preparation of the comments.
