Deadline is July 2nd; DOR Cannot Accept Late Claims
With just 7 days remaining in the filing period, the Wisconsin Department of Revenue (DOR) is urging eligible claimants to file for their $100 per child sales tax rebate. Claims must be filed by July 2, but DOR encourages those who are eligible not to wait until the last minute. DOR estimates that roughly 670,000 households, with 1.22 million children in total, are eligible to file a claim.
“Time is running out to claim your Child Sales Tax Rebate,” said Department of Revenue Secretary Richard Chandler. “It’s easy to put this off and think you’ll do it later. However, after July 2, we are unable to accept claims, so if you’re eligible, don’t wait.”
