Wisconsin – State Offers Tax Amnesty Under the Streamline Sales and Use Tax Agreement

Wisconsin will offer a sales tax amnesty program for certain unregistered businesses that are not currently collecting and remitting Wisconsin sales and use tax. The amnesty period runs from July 1, 2009 to September 30, 2010.

To participate, a business must voluntarily register to collect and remit Wisconsin sales tax and sales tax in all other member states of the Streamlined Sales and Use Tax Agreement (“SSUTA”) for at least 36 months. Taxes on sales made prior to registration for the amnesty program will not be required to be remitted to Wisconsin. The program does not apply to any sales and use tax that a person owes as a purchaser.

Registration must occur between July 1, 2009 and September 30, 2010, using the Streamlined Sales Tax Central Registration System.

A business will be ineligible to participate in the Amnesty Program, if one or more of the following apply:

  1. business is currently registered to collect Wisconsin sales tax;
  2. business was registered to collect Wisconsin sales tax at any time during the past 12 months;
  3. business received an audit notice, unless the audit and all related appeals are resolved; or
  4. business committed or has been involved in fraud or intentional misrepresentation.
