Wisconsin governor signs child tax rebate, sales tax holiday

Parents can take advantage starting May 15


Wisconsin parents have opportunities to get cash and save money this spring and summer.

Gov. Scott Walker signed legislation Tuesday that allows parents to sign up online for a one-time $100-per-child tax rebate, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported. He also expanded a separate tax holiday from one weekend this summer to five days, Aug. 1-5.

Parents can sign up for the rebate May 15 to July 2 on the state Department of Revenue website, the Sentinel reported.

“This rebate and sales tax holiday will help Wisconsin families with the costs of raising children,” Walker said in a statement, the Sentinel reported. “A couple hundred dollars more in the family budget could really make a difference, particularly when getting ready for the next school year."

Walker is up for re-election in November.
