E-file Software Products

You can prepare and electronically file both your federal and state income tax returns by connecting to a software company website, if:

  1. You have a computer; and
  2. You have Internet access.

What You Need to Know:

Additional Information About Online Filing:

*When you e-file and claim certain credits (for example, the homestead credit), you must send documents to verify the credit claimed. The Form W-RA lists what credits need additional documentation and it gives the needed documents.

If you need to send additional documents to verify a credit that you claimed, they should be sent within 48 hours of e-filing and you can either:

  1. Attach the required documents to your tax return to be e-filed (if your software allows attachments);
  2. Electronically send through a process explained at https://tap.revenue.wi.gov/services; or
  3. Mail to the address given on the Form W-RA.

Approved Vendor List

These vendors are approved by the Wisconsin Department of Revenue (DOR). Their software products have been tested to ensure DOR can receive and process the tax return; however, DOR does not guarantee any aspect of the software, its features or performance. Please make sure the software vendor company supports all of the forms and schedules you need to electronically file your individual income tax return.
