Parents throughout Wisconsin may now apply online for a $100-per-child sales tax rebate.

The rebate is being touted by Gov. Scott Walker, Assembly Speaker Robin Vos and other Republican leaders who championed the measure last winter. Some state Democrats, however, have labeled the rebate an election year gimmick.

In a recent interview, Vos (R-Rochester) said his goal is to make sure all parents who are eligible for the rebate know how to apply.

Vos said because it is an election year, state legislators facing election have suspended their regular constituent communications as dictated by campaign laws. So Vos said he is taking the message directly to the media.

“I don’t want it to be a political thing,” he said.

Parents can file a claim at In order to receive the sales tax rebate, the child must be younger than 18 by the end of 2017, a dependent for the 2017 tax year, a U.S. citizen and a resident of Wisconsin.
