Wisconsin State tax filing deadline extended to July 15th

MADISON, Wis. (WKBT)– In consideration of the COVID-19 outbreak, the Wisconsin state tax filing deadline has been extended to July 15th.

The deadline matches the federal tax deadline, which was extended earlier.

“This is just one more thing we can do for Wisconsinites during this challenging time. Our main goal is to assist our citizens in any way that we can,” said Governor Tony Evers.

Those filing their taxes do not have to fill out any extension forms to be eligible for the new date, and there is no limit on the amount of payment that can be postponed.

Wisconsinites of all incomes are eligible for the extension.

Roughly half of Wisconsinites have already filed their tax returns, according to Department of Revenue Secretary Peter Barca.
