The Wisconsin Department of Revenue just announced that due to the extreme weather conditions, State agencies were closed for public business on Wednesday, January 30th.
The United States Postal Service is also experiencing service disruptions throughout the state.
As a result, due dates for sales, withholding and other business taxes (premier resort tax, local exposition tax, etc.) are extended. Due dates to submit Forms W-2 wage and tax statements and Forms 1099 are also extended.
Any return or wage statement that was due January 31st, 2019, will be automatically given a new due date of Monday, February 4th. Please note that as of time of publication no similar announcement by the Internal Revenue Service has been made. Assume the federal due date of January 31, 2019 has not been extended. If you have additional questions, please reach out to your Wegner CPAs representative or Cam Brawley, Director of State and Local Taxes.
