Just so that we can be clear, Loophole is defined as “an ambiguity or omission in the text through which the intent of a statute, contract, or obligation may be evaded.”(www.m-w.com)

That being said State Senator Jon Erpenbach is calling for a HUGE tax increase that will affect every Wisconsinite.

Here is his logic: the state sales tax law has provisions in it that exempt certain types of goods and services from being taxed. Many of the exemptions were made due to some interest group petitioning legislators that they should be exempted. These exemptions were written into law. Mr. Erpenbach wants to change the law and thereby increase taxes.

He is stating that he is just “closing a loophole” but that is why I gave you the definition of loophole at the beginning. There is no loophole to close. The exemptions are written out and are stated very clearly.

Mr. Erpenbach wants the people of Wisconsin to believe that this is not a tax increase when in fact it is.
