Wisconsin Child Sales Tax Rebate

Girl counting flower petalsAre you a Wisconsin resident with a child under 18 whom you claim as a dependent on your tax return? If so, you may be entitled to a $100 rebate per child from the Wisconsin Department of Revenue.

Due to sound fiscal management and a strong economy, Wisconsin has a state budget surplus of almost $400 million. The Governor and State Legislature have determined that some of the surplus be returned to taxpayers in the form of a Child Sales Tax Rebate. This is a $100 rebate for sales and use tax paid on purchases made for raising a dependent child in 2017.

The filing deadline to claim this rebate is July 2, 2018.

  • Have a qualified child

o Child is under age 18 on December 31, 2017

o Child was claimed as a dependent for tax year 2017

o Child was a Wisconsin resident on 12/31/17

o Child is a US citizen

  • A child may only be claimed by one individual

What you need to file claim:

  • Parent/individual claiming child information

o Social Security number

o Date of birth

o Wisconsin residency for tax year 2017

o Marriage status (Y/N) as of December 31, 2017

  • Qualified child's Social Security number and date of birth
  • If you choose direct deposit, bank routing number and account number
  • If you are a nonresident or part-year resident that moved out of Wisconsin in 2017, you must submit additional proof
