Baseball Stadium Tax to Expire in Wisconsin

Mar 16th, 2020

Effective March 31, 2020, Wisconsin's baseball stadium tax expires. This is a sales tax on certain goods for counties within the baseball stadium district. Sales of tangible personal property, certain coins and stamps, and digital goods will no longer be subject to this tax if the seller transfers possession of the tangible property or the right to use the digital goods to the buyer on or after April 1, 2020. The tax will also not apply to services, leases, rentals, or licenses of taxable products that are billed to customers on or after April 1, 2020.

The Wisconsin Department of Revenue has provided examples describing when the tax will or will not apply to guide taxpayers through the transition.
