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.
