Wisconsin taxpayers can apply for child tax rebate Tuesday

By  | 

MADISON, Wis. (AP) Wisconsin taxpayers can apply online starting Tuesday for a $100 per-child tax rebate.

The rebate can be claimed through a newly launched state website. The site has information about who is eligible for the money, what information is needed to apply and how to submit a claim.

The period to seek the rebate is open from Tuesday through July 2.

The tax rebate was proposed by Gov. Scott Walker and approved by the Republican-controlled Legislature earlier this year. It will return an estimated $122 million to qualified taxpayers by Sept. 1, a couple months before Walker is on the ballot for re-election.

Democrats have assailed the rebate, and a five-day sales tax holiday in August, as nothing more than election-year bribes.

Rebates will be made either through direct deposit or a mailed check.
