Dark Store Legislation Campaign

The Village of Pewaukee, along with many other Wisconsin municipalities, is supporting the League of Wisconsin Municipalities efforts to get legislation passed that would close Dark Store Loopholes that currently exist. Currently, loopholes in State law make it possible for commercial property owners to be assessed for much lower values, ultimately shifting the tax burden to residential property owners. The League of Wisconsin Municipalities has created a website with additional information regarding Dark Store Loopholes.

Please watch this short whiteboard video that explains how the Dark Store loopholes work and how it impacts you!
