Identity and refund theft are on the rise. The Wisconsin Department of Revenue is safeguarding you and your refund from identity theft, fraud and errors.
- Our strong fraud and error safeguards could delay some returns up to 12 weeks
- We won't hold a refund if we can verify all the information
If we suspect someone is trying to steal your identity or commit fraud for your tax refund, or there’s an error, we will:
- Notify you by mail
- Ask you to verify your identity
