To file

  • Select "Telecom Fee"
  • Click the correct period (December 31, 2020)

  • Important: You must file both a Real Estate return and Personal Property return
    • If you do not have Real Estate or Personal Property in Wisconsin, you must still select the return as if you were filing, then answer the first question for the declaration

Additional information – late filing penalty

  • One month or less – if you file within a month after March 2, 2020 (or April 1, 2020 for an extension), DOR will charge you a 5 percent penalty of the 2020 taxes
  • For each additional month you are late – DOR will charge another 5 percent, not exceeding 25 percent of the total
