Administrative Rule Open for Public Comment

The Department of Revenue (DOR) is soliciting comments concerning the economic effect of a proposed administrative rule. The rule revises Section Tax 11 for sales and use tax updates and clarifications relating to building materials for local governments or nonprofit facilities; coin-operated laundry machines; distribution facilities; diplomatic exemptions; exemption certificate requirements; exemptions requiring an exemption certificate; federal excise taxes on heavy trucks; fuel and electricity used in manufacturing; insulin injection equipment; music sold for jukeboxes; nexus provisions; occasional sale exemptions for nonprofits; off-highway motorcycles; sports and entertainment arena facilities; and video service franchise fees.

Comments concerning the economic effect of the proposed rule on specific businesses, business sectors, public utility ratepayers, local governmental units, and Wisconsin's economy as a whole will be taken into consideration in the preparation of the Economic Impact Analysis (EIA) required by statute (sec. 227.137, Wis. Stats. (2017-18)). Local governmental units interested in working with DOR to prepare the EIA may submit a request to do so by using the link for comments below.
