Wisconsin: A Challenging Frontier For Taxpayers

According to the Tax Foundation, a non-partisan tax policy nonprofit, Wisconsin has the 5th highest tax burden in the nation, with the 10th highest income tax rate of any state. Most residents of the Badger State pay more than their fair share of taxes - but that does not prevent the IRS from pursuing more through audits and collection actions.

In recent years, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker has asked for funding to hire many additional audit and tax enforcement agents to the Wisconsin Department of Revenue. These agents draw on federal IRS audit data to target state audits. That means it is essential for Wisconsin taxpayers to maintain good standing with the IRS to avoid additional enforcement action by the state.

At Silver Tax Group, our attorneys are prepared to assist individual and business taxpayers in all of Wisconsin's industries, including:

  • Manufacturing
  • Agriculture
  • Healthcare
  • Tourism

The IRS audits less than one percent of all filed tax returns, but your chances of being audited vary greatly depending on your business activities and income. While the IRS audits only .88 percent of returns by individuals earning less than $200,000 per year, they audit 11 percent of tax returns filed by those earning $1 million or more. Large corporations with assets exceeding $10 million face an audit rate of 16 percent.
