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.
