MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - You'll hear a lot about cutting taxes as we head into 2014, a key election year for Wisconsin politicians.  

The current state legislative session will end in April -- and Republican Assembly Speaker Robin Vos says there won't be a lot of time to make some of the most sweeping changes that are being talked about.  

He says any tax cut would depend on how state tax collections are going -- and we'll get an update about that in mid-January.  

Governor Scott Walker has floated the idea about dumping the income tax, and perhaps increasing the sales tax. It appears to have a lukewarm reception.  

Vos said it would a difficult change to make in such a short time. He says he's more interested in a proposal for a sales tax holiday for buying back to school items late in the summer.
