Wisconsin’s tax season was extended to July 15 this year due to COVID-19, and so far, 2.7 million tax filers have submitted returns out of an expected 3 million. The Wisconsin Department of Revenue (DOR) expects filing activity will be brisk the last few weeks of the season and encourages people to file now.
There are advantages to filing sooner rather than later.
- You are more likely to get your refund faster, if you have one coming. If you owe taxes, you may still file now and wait until July 15 to pay.
- If you have questions or need assistance, DOR customer service staff are ready to quickly assist, and there will likely be less waiting time than if you file just before the deadline.
