The Wisconsin Department of Revenue has posted several updates, reports and publication revisions to its website, with two in particular relevant to the lodging industry, including:
“Tax Release: ‘Buy One, Get One Free’ and Similar Promotions,” which revises an article of the same name, reflecting a law change that went into effect on September 1, 2011.
“Golf Courses – How Do Wisconsin Sales & Use Taxes Affect Your Operations,” also known as “Publication 226″ has been revised.
Additional resources available at the Department of Revenue’s website include the December 2011 “Withholding Tax Update,” with articles like “Current Withholding Rates to Apply for 2012,” “Recent Legislation – Health Care Benefits for Adult Children under 27,” “Federal Wage Statements and Information Returns,” and more.
