About the Wisconsin Sales Tax

The state of Wisconsin has relatively simple sales tax rate, and utilizes a flat state tax rate. However, in addition to the flat state tax rate, there is a base county tax. Any local tax rates would be in addition to the state rate.

Is the Wisconsin Sales Tax Destination-Based or Origin-Based?

Wisconsin is a destination-based sales tax state, which means that sales tax rates are determined by the location of the buyer when the transaction is completed. This means that, for orders placed via the internet/mail by a customer within Wisconsin from a Wisconsin vendor, the vendor must collect a sales tax rate applicable at the buyer's address (including any applicable local sales taxes). This can significantly increase the complication of filing your sales tax return, because different sales tax rates must be charged to different buyers based on their location.

Is Wisconsin a Streamlined Sales Tax State?

Wisconsin is a member of the Streamlined Sales and Use Tax Agreement, which means that the Wisconsin Department of Revenue has taken significant steps to simplify Wisconsin's sales tax rules and administration process.
