UPDATE: Unfortunately, it appears Wisconsin won't be hosting a tax holiday for back-to-school season this year. There was a distinct lack of news about the event, so we reached out to the state's Department of Revenue, and the contact simply replied with "We are not having one this year."
NOTE: The information below was assembled before we learned about Wisconsin's tax free weekend plans for 2019.
When Is the Next Wisconsin Tax Free Weekend?
If it returns, Wisconsin's sales tax holiday will likely last for five days around the beginning of August. Last year the holiday occurred from August 1 to August 5.
Though Wisconsin authorized the 2018 tax holiday, it hasn't mentioned whether it will bring the event back this year. According to a chart from the Federation of Tax Administrators, it doesn't appear the holiday will make a return in 2019.
What Items Qualify for Wisconsin Tax Free Shopping?
Should the event return this year, the exemptions would likely be similar to previous tax holidays. We'd expect the following:
- School supplies: $75 or less per item
- Clothing: $75 or less per item
- Computers: A single purchase of $750 or less
- School computer supplies: $250 or less per item
