Wisconsin's Child Tax Rebate

Posted by Admin Posted on May 23 2018

Child Tax Rebate -- YES, it is real!!!

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