Deadline for claiming the child tax rebate is July 2, 2018
MADISON – Governor Scott Walker joins families at Blain’s Farm and Fleet in Platteville and Shopko in La Crosse today to remind eligible parents, grandparents, and legal guardians to file for their $100-per-child tax rebate. The rebate must be claimed at ChildTaxRebate.wi.gov before the July 2, 2018 deadline. Direct deposits or mailed checks will be delivered by September 1, 2018.
“We encourage every eligible Wisconsin family to claim their $100-per-child tax rebate,” said Governor Walker. “With just under three weeks remaining in the filing period, over 450,000 families have already taken advantage of their Reform Dividend. This is money back in the pockets of hardworking taxpayers to help meet the needs of their children as they prepare to head back to school in the fall – we want everyone who is eligible to receive this tax credit.”
Wisconsin families who claim the rebate will receive $100 for each child living at home under the age of 18 as of December 31, 2017. Eligible parents must apply for their $100-Per-Child Tax Rebate between May 15 and July 2, so they can receive the money before school starts this fall.
Along with the Child Tax Rebate, all Wisconsinites will have the opportunity to take advantage of Wisconsin’s upcoming August 1 – 5 Back-To-School Sales Tax Holiday across the state. This means the state sales tax will not be charged for those days on school supplies where each item is $75 or less, clothing where each item is $75 or less, computer supplies where each item is $250 or less, and computers where each item is $750 or less.
The $100-Per-Child Tax Rebate builds on Governor Walker’s $8.1 billion in cumulative tax relief.
