Who We Are

Wisconsin's Tax and Accounting Bureau collects, controls, and accounts for flow of funds into and out of the UI program; establishes tax liability; maintains employer accounts for taxes paid; collects unpaid UI employer taxes and benefit overpayments.

DWD's Unemployment Insurance program provides a safety net to eligible workers and their families during times of unemployment. The UI program is financed through employer contributions (taxes).
