Within the 2017-19 state budget (2017 Wisconsin Act 59), the state amended sec. 79.095, Wis. Stats. For 2018 exempt computer aid payments, DOR must pay each taxing jurisdiction an amount equal to the exempt computer aid payment they received in July, 2017, multiplied by 1.0147.

In result, the Department of Revenue will not issue 2017 exempt computer value notices by October 1, 2017, as it is no longer required.

For budgeting purposes, each taxing jurisdiction should:

  • Calculate your July, 2018 exempt computer aid payment, which equals your July, 2017 exempt computer aid payment multiplied by 1.0147
  • Include the aid as a revenue in your 2018 budget
  • Adjust your 2017-18 property tax levy to account for the upcoming 2018 exempt computer aid payment

The July, 2017 exempt computer aid payment notices are available on our website under Exempt Computer Aid.
