- Keep the worksheet along with the confirmation number as your proof of filing. DO NOT MAIL THE WORKSHEET to the department.
How do I pay the tax due?
Make your payment on time using one of the three payment options.

Can someone else TeleFile for me?
If you are unable to use a touch-tone phone, you may have someone assist you in making the telephone call or have your tax preparer TeleFile your return.
Do I need to send paper copies of the return when I TeleFile?
No. As long as you complete the call and receive the confirmation number at the end, TeleFile satisfies your filing requirements for a Wisconsin tax return. DO NOT MAIL THE WORKSHEET to the department.
Do I need a receipt when I TeleFile?
When you TeleFile, you are given a confirmation number. The confirmation number is verification of filing electronically. Be sure to write this number on your TeleFile worksheet.
What if I make a mistake when using TeleFile?
If you realize the mistake before you receive your confirmation number, hang up, redial, and begin again.
If you already received the confirmation number, you must file a paper return (Form ST-12) to amend your TeleFile return. Check the box on the top of page 1 to indicate the return is amended. Follow the
instructions on page 6 of Form S-114, "Instructions for Wisconsin Sales and Use Tax Return,...".
