Department of Revenue filed tax warrant against State Rep. Jill Billings

LA CROSSE (WKBT) — The Wisconsin Department of Revenue filed a tax warrant this year against Wisconsin State Rep. Jill Billings (D-WI).

According to online court records, the assembly representative owes the state more than $10,000 in unpaid income taxes, interest, and penalties.

The Department of Revenue filed a lien against Billings back in January and then filed a warrant six months later in June.

Billings first won election to Wisconsin’s 95th District in 2011. The Democrat represents the City of La Crosse and the Towns of Shelby and Campbell.

News 8 Now asked State Rep. Billings about the tax warrant. Her staff sent this statement:

“A mistake was made, paperwork was missed, and my income taxes were late. The taxes and fees owed have been paid in full to the Department of Revenue.”

As of Monday afternoon online records still show Billings’ income taxes have not been paid.

News 8 Now asked the Department of Revenue if they can verify Billings paid her outstanding taxes, but they by law cannot do that.

News 8 Now then asked Billings to share any documents proving her taxes have been paid. Billings has not responded.
