MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Wisconsin has made a new income tax reciprocity offer to Minnesota

Wisconsin's Revenue Department announced the latest offer Thursday. The neighboring states have been unable to reach a deal since a 40-year agreement expired in 2009.

An agreement would simplify income taxes for the roughly 80,000 who live in one state and work in the other.

Wisconsin Revenue Secretary Rick Chandler says the latest offer provides that payments from Wisconsin to Minnesota would increase from the $58 million paid for tax year 2009 to $87 million for tax year 2015. Future payments would be made based on a study both states completed in 2013.

Minnesota's latest offer required Wisconsin to pay up to $6 million more, a proposal Wisconsin continues to reject. Chandler calls the request "unprecedented."
