Wisconsin Department of Revenue kicks off tax season

MADISON (CBS 58) -- Wisconsin's tax season, like the federal tax season, officially begins Monday, January 28.

This year's individual income tax filing deadline is Monday, April 15.

The Department of Revenue would like to remind taxpayers not to file until they have all their tax documents. Having to file an amended return later will significantly delay a refund.

"Most tax filers are filing their returns electronically, and we are pleased to see that because it's more secure and almost always results in a faster refund," says Wisconsin Department of Revenue Secretary Peter Barca. "Of the more than three million individual income tax returns the department received last year, just under 87% percent were filed electronically," Secretary Barca noted.

People may use the free, fast and accurate Wisconsin E-file online tool to file their state income taxes, or they may choose to use third-party software from an approved vendor.
