Wisconsin distilled spirits, cider and wine tax registrants and/or their representatives may now transmit the Form AB-130, Wisconsin Distilled Spirits, Cider and Wine Tax Return data in an electronic file over the Internet. This is a process intended for participants who have technical expertise to create and validate an XML document or are using software that provides that service for you. The Liquor File Transmission is:
- a secure process for receiving formatted electronic transmissions of liquor tax returns
- in XML language using a Department of Revenue web server
- offering a web GUI and scripted transmission methods
- allowing one return per XML file
- allowing multiple XML files zipped together for one transmission
- not using SOAP or MIME enveloping processes
- HTML based over SSL using 128 bit encryption
- available using the Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) debit and credit payment process, if the distilled spirits, cider and wine tax registrants are registered for EFT with the Wisconsin Department of Revenue

New Email Address Requirement
Beginning July 1, 2020 the department will require an email address to be provided in the Header/EmailAddress element. This will allow the department to send an email acknowledgment for each file transferred. The acknowledgment will be an XML file that will state whether the file was accepted or rejected. If the return is rejected, the acknowledgment will detail each issue identified in the file.
