In order to be eligible for the tax rebate, the child must be under the age of 18 by the end of last year, a dependent for the 2017 tax year, a USA citizen and a resident of Wisconsin.
"Due to our sound fiscal management and strong economy, we're able to reward parents across the state with a $100 rebate for each child under 18", said Rep. Mark Born, R-Beaver Dam. The filing period will remain open until July 2 and most rebates will be paid within three weeks.
The Revenue Department estimated that rebates for just over 1.2 million children would be received over that time. All residents of the state of Wisconsin are eligible to receive $100 for each dependent child under the age of 18 who are living at home.
This $100-Per-Child Tax Rebate, coupled with the August Back-To-School Sales Tax Holiday, will provide relief to parents, grandparents, and legal guardians as their children head back to school in the fall.
Applications will be accepted through July 2, with all the money sent to qualified taxpayers by September.
To qualify, children must have been younger than 18 as of December 31, 2017, and be a Wisconsin resident.
