AB416 is now 2015 Wis Act 86

As noted previously, three DWD proposals were quickly put into a bill, AB416, and that bill was passed by the legislature, signed by the Governor on November 11th, and published that same day as 2015 Wisconsin Act 86.

The three DWD proposals that make up this bill are:

  • D15-02 — adding the ability to issue determinations against out-of-state employers in combined wage claims for being at fault for an erroneous benefit payment to a claimant,
  • D15-03 — applying the Treasury offset program to employers, as described previously in this post, and
  • D15-07 — changes to how work share benefits are calculated so as to comply with federal requirements for work share programs.

Given the quick passage of this bill, the Treasury offset of tax refunds against employers will be in effect for the 2015 tax year. Accordingly, employers who owe money because of unpaid employer employment taxes will have any 2015 tax refunds due them intercepted by the state in order to recover unpaid taxes that are due.
