September 26, 2023 8:44 AM | Anonymous

Legislation (AB 408 / SB 398) was recently introduced in the state Legislature to create a Wisconsin income tax credit to help offset the costs of employment-related transportation services incurred by a person considered blind under federal tax guidelines.

The proposed non-refundable tax credit would be equal to 50 percent of the cost of covered transportation services and would be limited to $1,500 per taxable year. Under the bill, eligible transportation services must be provided by mass transit, paratransit, taxicab, or a transportation network company.

The proposed legislation was introduced earlier this month and is awaiting further consideration by state lawmakers.
