Wisconsin Releases December Sales and Use Tax Report

Jan 4th, 2016

The Wisconsin Department of Revenue released its last issue of its Sales and Use Tax Report, which explains new tax laws passed in 2015.

The new laws include an exemption for some building materials sold to construction contractors. The materials must be used to construct facilities for certain government or charitable organizations and must be transferred to the organizations as part of the construction contracts. In addition, new laws (1) provide tax relief for organizations based outside of Wisconsin that provide disaster relief in the state and (2) distribute surplus revenue from football stadium district sales taxes.

The report also discusses the taxability of admissions, paper medical records, winterizing services, holiday tree sales, fishing and hunting guide services, donated property, catering services, and barters.
