Here's the thing: Under the WI proposal originally quoted, if you're retired and not yet 65, your tax would drop to zero! Clearly we can see that's an unacceptable giveaway to the idle well-to-do? I'd like to think that aspect of the plan would make it DOA. If not, I know where I'm FIREing to -- Move to Wisconsin, buy a 12-month temporary policy, and let the working wagepayers pay my freight...I don't live in Wisconsin, nor do I intend to under any circumstances. What happens in Wisconsin is an issue for the residents of Wisconsin and not for me. I don't know enough about the proposal to say anything about it. I don't really care, either.As for paying the freight (regardless of state of residence), the moment you become FIRE'd, the working taxpayers will be paying some of the freight you don't have to because you will no longer be subject to taxes that only apply to those with earned income.Churchy
