On April 3, 2018, Governor Scott Walker signed 2017 Assembly Bill 259 into law which addresses the recent federal tax reform and enacts a number of tax provisions. Most changes are effective for the 2018 tax year, but a few are retroactive to the 2017 tax year and may significantly alter your approach to tax planning.
A few key provisions Wisconsin has adopted:
Increased luxury auto depreciation limits
Limitation on deduction for qualified residence interest
Repeal of deduction for alimony payments
The ability to use 529 accounts to fund elementary and secondary education
Modification of treatment of S-Corporation conversions to C-Corporations
Wisconsin has not adopted:
The 20% deduction for qualified business income of pass-through entities
100 percent bonus depreciation
Limitation on Losses for Taxpayers Other Than Corporations
Limits on deductibility of business interest under section 163(j)
