Employer Wage Reporting


Read an overview of the Wage Reporting program and requirements for Wisconsin Employers.

Wage Reports

Wage reports may be submitted using the following methods:

Employers with 25 or more employees in a quarter are required to file their quarterly tax and wage reports electronically. Once you are required to file electronically you must continue to file electronically in the future.

Filing reports electronically using our online tax and wage reporting system is easier, more accurate, and more efficient. Employers and service agents can key quarterly wage data directly into our website or upload a wage file.

We currently accept FOUR data formats for Internet upload of wage reports.

Employers and service agents using Excel to maintain and submit quarterly wage data on-line should review our Instructions for Converting Excel Files for Internet Upload.

Employer agents are required to file their reports electronically. We strongly encourage all employers to report their wage data electronically.
