How Will The Tax Reform Affect Wisconsin Taxes?


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.

View (or search) the complete summary.

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)
