  2. Can multiple users access an account at the same time?

    No. Only one authorized user can access an account at a time. If the account is already open and in use, other authorized users are "locked" out of the account.
    • The "Authorized Accounts" page lists accounts you are authorized to access
    • If an account is already open by another authorized user, the State ID # is black and is not underlined. Hover over the ID number to see which other authorized user is in the account.

  3. Can I download the pre-filled M-Form more than once?

    • Yes. If you are an authorized user, you can download the pre-filled M-Form
    • A list of downloaded M-Forms is available on the "Account History" page until the form is filed
    • Although multiple authorized users may download a form, once a downloaded form is submitted, the other saved forms cannot be filed. This prevents multiple users from accidently overwriting each other's work.

  4. I have a new location for my property. How do I report the new location?

    Contact a Wisconsin Department of Revenue (DOR) appraiser at the Manufacturing & Utility Bureau District Office in your area. Explain the property location changes to the appraiser. He or she will inform you of your filing requirements.

  5. I purchased a real estate parcel that is used for manufacturing. What should I do?

    Contact the Manufacturing & Utility Bureau District Office in your area. Explain the property status changes to the appraiser. He or she will inform you of your filing requirements.

  6. My property sold. What are my filing requirements? Do I need to let someone know?

    • Yes. You need to inform DOR that you sold your property.
    • Electronic filers - must log into the Manufacturing Assessment System. On the Account History page for the property that sold, select "Record Sale," answer the questions and save.
    • Paper filers - must print and complete the "Sale Information" schedule and send it to the Manufacturing & Utility Bureau District Office in your area
    • You can also contact the Manufacturing & Utility Bureau District Office in your area to discuss the status of your account

  7. I'm no longer in business. What are my filing requirements? Do I need to let someone know?


  8. How do I add a new account to my authorized accounts list?

    To add a new account, you must sign into your WAMS account and request authorization.

  9. I recently added a new account. Why doesn't it show up on my authorized account list?

    After submitting a signed electronic authorization request for a new account, it may take up to 24 hours for DOR to process the authorization request.

  10. How can I get a copy of last year's return?

    If you are an authorized account user, go to the "Account History" page and follow the instructions to print prior e-filed returns.

  11. My firm is trying to electronically file an M-L Form for a new leasing company. The leasing company does not have a State ID number. What should I do?

    For the first year you must file a paper M-L Form. This allows DOR's Manufacturing staff to audit the return and determine future filing requirements.

For more information, contact the DOR Manufacturing & Utility Bureau District Office in your area.
