Madison, WI (NNCNOW.com) - Wisconsin has an offer on the table to restore an income tax reciprocity agreement with Minnesota.

The proposal affects about 80,000 people who live in one state and work in another.

The offer provides payments from Wisconsin to Minnesota would rise from the $58 million paid for tax year 2009 to $87 million for 2015.

The Wisconsin Department of Revenue Secretary's says the payments would be made quarterly throughout each year, rather than after the tax year ended.

Wisconsin officials say Minnesota's June offer demanding an additional payment of five million dollars is unfair.

Former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty ended reciprocity in 2010.

Wisconsin wants a plan in place by September 30th.
