Third-Party Software for Withholding e-File Returns


Business taxpayers may use third-party software to prepare and electronically file withholding tax returns, pay withholding tax, and file W-2s and/or 1099s. While the Wisconsin Department of Revenue (DOR) does not charge for electronic filing of tax returns, third-party vendors typically charge a fee for their software products and services. These products vary in price and features. Filers should keep in mind:

  • Software is supplied directly by the developer of that software, not the Wisconsin Department of Revenue. In most cases, you can download or purchase software from an Internet site and pay with a credit card.
  • The purchase price of the software may or may not include preparation of the returns. Electronic filing of your returns may require that you pay an additional fee to the software vendor at the time of filing.
  • Filers should keep a copy of the return and acknowledgement for their records.
