Free-File Your Taxes
It’s that time of year when important end of the year tax statements start showing up in your mailbox. For many people, preparing their state and federal income taxes is a chore, but there is one good reason not to put it off until the last minute; the majority of taxpayers actually receive income tax refunds! The sooner you do your taxes, the sooner you will get YOUR money back. Using Wisconsin’s Free-File system will help you get your money back even faster.
99% of e-filers get their refund in 5 business days when they use direct deposit. Paper filers typically have to wait 8-12 weeks for their paper refund check.
You don’t have to worry about accuracy because the e-filing software will take care of the math and even pick the correct tax tables for you.
Take a moment to check out the Wisconsin Free-File Site and see if it is right for you. The IRS also provides a Federal Free-File service.
