  1. Can I file my Wisconsin sales and use tax return electronically?

    Currently you have three options available for electronic filing of your Wisconsin sales and use tax return:

    • My Tax Account is the Department of Revenue's (DOR) free online business tax service that allows businesses to access their accounts to view current account status, file and amend returns, file claims for refund, make payments, and manage and update account information. It's simple, secure and available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. See My Tax Account for more information.
    • File Transmission is a secure process that provides a direct electronic interface between your system and DOR. Retailers can simply upload their sales and use tax returns to an electronic file to transmit to DOR over the Internet. See File Transmission for more information.
    • Sales TeleFile is an interactive voice response program that allows businesses to file Wisconsin sales and use tax returns using the telephone. The TeleFile program does not require a personal computer. See Sales TeleFile for more information.
  2. Can I make an electronic payment for the sales and use taxes I owe?

    Yes. The DOR offers and accepts electronic funds transfer (EFT) as a payment method to pay your sales and use taxes using any of the filing methods listed above. My Tax Account accepts payments for sales and use taxes 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

    Note: To be considered timely, an EFT ACH Debit sales/use tax payment must be initiated by 4:00 p.m. Central Time on the payment due date. You also are required to file the corresponding Wisconsin sales and use tax return by the return due date.

  3. Am I required to file my sales and use tax return electronically?

    Yes. The DOR requires all sales and use tax returns be filed electronically.
