Child Sales Tax Rebate

The Wisconsin Department of Revenue is offering a $100 (per child) sales tax rebate for dependent children.

Sound fiscal management and a strong economy have resulted in a state budget surplus of almost $400 million for the state of Wisconsin. Recently, a law passed to return some of that surplus to taxpayers in the form of a Child Sales Tax Rebate. If you’re eligible, you can claim it between May 15 and July 2. 

What is the 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. You may claim $100 for each qualified child.

Who can claim the Child Sales Tax rebate?

If you have a qualified child, you’re likely eligible. A child may only be claimed by one individual.

  • Under age 18 on December 31, 2017
