Wisconsin child sales tax rebate money

Heads up, all you lucky Wisconsinites! 💵

If you live in the state of Wisconsin and have kiddos who were under the age of 18 on December 31st, 2017, you may be happy to hear that you’re eligible to claim a $100 Child Sales Tax Rebate Credit per child!

Due to a budget surplus of almost $400 million for the state of Wisconsin, Governor Walker and the State Legislature have determined that some of the surpluses should be returned to taxpayers in the form of a $100 Child Sales Tax Rebate. Pretty sweet, right?!

Keep in mind that the application period is from May 15th through July 2nd, 2018. Visit this site for more details and to start filing your rebate, or read through some frequently asked questions.

    Why only people with kids? I live here and pay taxes too!

    • jenn

      I have kids, yet wondered the same thing. Doesn’t seem fair to the people who don’t want/don’t want yet, or can’t have kids.

    • Deb

      I agree! why only people with kids?! if you don’t have kids you have to pay more taxes. seems like it should be the other way around since kids require more resources

    • K

      I think it’s because people who have kids generally spend more money. Daycare, clothing, food, medical costs, etc. I think the idea is that the money will be put back in the economy by parents on expenses for their children. I don’t think it’s meant to punish those without children and reward those with children. Ultimately I think it was an economic decision.

    Not to get too political with it because this is a fun place for saving money but as a teacher I can’t support this knowing how much Walker came in and cut funding to schools and now we’re giving back surplus. Our roads are terrible too. An extra $200 for me is nice but this money has a better use.

    • Selah

      “I can’t support this but I’m going to take the $200 anyways”. You don’t have to accept the money. You also have the option to donate it to the school of your choice. Also, our roads are being worked on constantly to the point where it’s annoying and the funding cut was balanced out by Act 10.

      • candace

        …..yeah. Just no. They came in with sweeping $1 million dollar cuts per school I want to say 2 years ago. That was long after. One thing my school made cuts to was our insurance and went from a decent enough insurance to a $10,000 deductible plan. Can you imagine? I paid $5,600 our of pocket for my son’s birth when I work in a professional field. Then on top we trim trim trimmed. Cut aides, cut funds for even basic supplies…Small district next to mine had to cut EVERY teacher from 100%, all general aides laid off, minimal special ed aides, and a referendum so they could afford the cuts enough to stay open as a district. He’s doing it for votes and will complain there’s not money later on.

    This is when I want kids lol

    • hellfiregainz

      For a fast $100? One kid is going to cost you $1,000’s per year. Lol

      • Rae

        lol for real!

  9. mikeB

    I live in Wisconsin. This is just part of Scott Walker trying to buy votes in his re-election bid for Governor

    • Amber

      You’re right. How dare the Governor create a surplus for the state and then give it back to the taxpayers! And the gall of some people to even think about supporting a governor that creates a surplus. Sheer madness! Why can’t we be like Illinois and have a 14.6 billion dollar deficit?

      • Katie

        We still have a 1.6 billion dollar deficit and it is projected to increase to 2.1 billion by 2019. I personally feel the money could have been more wisely spent than the just give it back to families with children.

  10. Blanca

    😂😂😂 I’m in California- could only dream about a surplus here to complain about

  11. Kruiz528

    The comments are funny. I thought for a second I was reading comments from a yahoo article.

    • riss

      Yes! I only go to yahoo to read comments. Very entertaining:)

  12. Gisette

    Ha! Will never see anything like this in the state we currently live in-Illinois 🤣

    • Jen L

      Or Michigan lol.

    • hip2trade

      Or Alabama 😂

    • hip2trade

      We are 1 of 2 states that pay sales tax on Food!!

    • vmm

      never say never…it could happen…someday ?
      8 years ago, we Wisconsinites would have never believed it either!

  13. D Haban

    We live in IL. I am sure that sometime this year IL will charge everybody $100 extra per child with some kind of new tax. Cannot wait to get out of IL! It’s nice to see that at least one state in the Midwest has at least some clue as to money in versus money out.

  14. Kim

    I live in IL in cook county. We pay the highest sales taxes etc in the country and the most corrupt poloticions in the country. Look up balogovich (although I believe he got way too much time, George Ryan. Etc. can’t wait to leave

  15. Jeenal Patel
