Correction to June 2010 Wisconsin Tax Bulletin # 167

Election Campaign Fund Designation Amount Increased. 2009 Act 216 changed the effective date to taxable years beginning on or after January 1, 2010.

Every individual filing an income tax return who has a tax liability or is entitled to a tax refund may designate $3 ($1 under prior law) for the Wisconsin election campaign fund and the democracy trust fund for the use of eligible candidates. If the individuals filing a joint return have a tax liability or are entitled to a tax refund, each individual may make a designation of $3.

(Note: 2009 Act 216 amended Act 89 to change the initial applicability date. As a result, the effective date shown above was changed from taxable years beginning on or after January 1, 2011, to January 1, 2010.)
