A nonresident of Wisconsin who is an owner of a pass-through entity (partner of a partnership, shareholder of a tax-option (S) corporation, or beneficiary of an estate or trust) may request an exemption from pass-through withholding by filing Form PW-2.
A new electronic filing option is available through
My Tax Account, the department's online filing system. To start filing, click on "Nonresident PW-2" in the "Quick-Links" tab.
Beginning January 1, 2022, all owners will be required to file Form PW-2 electronically and may not fax or mail Form PW-2, unless a waiver is obtained from the department.
