Redesigned Notice of Refund

The Wisconsin Department of Revenue (DOR) is launching a second redesigned notice as part of its plain language initiative. The redesigned Notice of Refund will be sent to taxpayers in June. The Notice of Refund now has a simpler layout and other changes:

  • Commonly asked questions about the notice are answered on the first page, with direction on where to find more detail
  • Details of changes are organized in a table where figures can easily be calculated, with written explanations listed below
  • Debts owed to other tax accounts or government agencies are clearly labeled
  • Language is revised to be simple, clear and easy to understand, following plain language guidelines

Other notices and letters will be redesigned and implemented over the next several months. Learn more about DOR's redesigned notices on our website, Wisconsin Department of Revenue.
