Dear Friends,

On Tuesday, December 12th, the Forum will host Todd Berry, PHD, who will address many significant taxes that are not readily known, thought of, or recognized by taxpayers. Cumulatively, these “hidden taxes” are a massive burden on we, the WI taxpayers. Given that the State of WI biennial Budget is finally signed, and the Federal Gov’t seems to be finalizing a tax overhaul, Mr. Berry’s insight into “hidden taxes” is quite timely so we can also factor these into our big picture fiscal thinking, understanding, etc.

Mr. Berry is the current President of the Wisconsin Taxpayer Alliance (WISTAX) and has been President since 1994. Wistax has been focusing on Wisconsin taxes for 85 years and offers a fabulous website ( which provides many hours of valuable videos, audio and written literature. It is strongly recommended that the site be explored.
