WisDems: Kim Simac Must Produce State Tax Records Now

Jul 27, 2011

MADISON-The Democratic Party of Wisconsin demanded Thursday that extremist Kim Simac produce state income tax records after a misleading commercial in which she brazenly wielded around pieces of paper meant to create the impression she had, in fact, paid state income taxes.

Recent reports show that Simac paid zero net income tax to the state in 2001, 2004, 2005, 2006, and 2008. Records also show that in 2000, she paid a total of $4 in net state income taxes. In 2007, her tax bill was a single dollar.

“Most Wisconsinites pay their state taxes, but extremist Kim Simac is not shooting straight with the public with totally misleading claims that fly directly in the face of the public record,” Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Mike Tate said Thursday. “Kim Simac should show her state income tax receipts if she really wants to prove that she pays her fair share. Otherwise, it looks like typical spin from someone who can’t, and won’t, tell the truth.”
