In Tax Tips

Starting May 15, 2018 through July 2, 2018, you might be eligible for a one‐time $100 child tax rebate.

This is a rebate on sales and use tax paid on purchases for raising a qualified child in 2017.

A qualified child is considered:

  1. Under the age of 18 on December 31, 2017,
  2. The claimant’s dependent for tax year 2017,
  3. A United States Citizen, and
  4. A resident of Wisconsin on December 31, 2017.

Additional information regarding the child tax rebate:

  1. The claimant need not to file a 2017 income tax return to show a child was their dependent, but
    the Wisconsin Department of Revenue may request additional information to prove the child
    would have been claimed as their dependent.
  2. If the claimant is divorced, legally separated, or filed a federal income tax return separate from
    their spouse in 2017, then the person who claimed the child as a dependent on their 2017 federal
    income tax return may claim the rebate for the child.
  3. If the child was born in 2017, then they qualify as a qualifying child for 2017.
  4. If the child died in 2017 or 2018, the child still qualifies as a qualifying child for 2017.
