Section 4 - Wage Reporting

PART 7 - Wage Reporting Penalties

All employers who are subject under Wisconsin's Unemployment Insurance law must file quarterly wage reports as required by the department. Each report is due at the end of the month following the close of each calendar quarter.

Quarter Number Ending Report Due
1 March 31st April 30th
2 June 30th July 31st
3 September 30th October 31st
4 December 31st January 31st

There are penalties for late filing or non-filing of quarterly wage reports:

Penalties are also assessed if reports that are required to be filed electronically are submitted using paper forms. Section 108.205(2), Wisconsin Statutes, requires employers with 25 or more employees to file their reports electronically.

Employers are responsible for any penalties that may arise from their own or their representative's failure to file timely wage reports.
