Motor Fuel Tax e-File - Program Overview

The Wisconsin Department of Revenue will begin accepting Motor Vehicle Fuel Tax Reports, Carrier Reports and Terminal Operator Reports and corresponding schedules electronically beginning with the November 2011 return filed after December 5, 2011.

The transmission method will be via DOR's Secure FTP server. The return data will be formatted using Extensible Markup Language (XML). The format of the XML is based on the FTA e-File standard for state e-File programs, but specifically developed and approved for Motor Fuel Tax by the FTA Motor Fuel Uniformity Comittee. It uses standard building blocks and standard packaging.

Each submission will receive an acknowledgement (or rejection notice) generally within a few minutes. If the return is rejected, we will list the reasons why it was rejected.

Payment and refund options: We offer refund direct deposit capabilities and multiple options for making payments.
