Wisconsin law provides that the long-term capital gain may be deferred when the gain is reinvested in a qualified Wisconsin business. Who may claim the deferral of gain The deferral of gain may be claimed by an individual, including an individual partner of a partnership, member of a limited liability company, or shareholder of a tax-option (S) corporation. Definitions “Long-term capital gain” means the gain realized from the sale of any capital asset held more than one year that is treated as a long-term gain under the Internal Revenue Code. “Qualified Wisconsin business” means a business certified by the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) or registered with the Department of Revenue. The WEDC was responsible for certifying businesses for 2011 through 2013. The department’s registration program began in 2014. A business must register with the department in each year in which it wants to be considered a qualified Wisconsin business. A business may register with the department if: I-071 (R. 7-20) Go to Page 2 2020 Schedule CG and Instructions Page 2 of 2 • The business has at least 2 full-time employees and the amount of payroll compensation paid by the business in Wisconsin is equal to at least 50 percent of the amount of all payroll paid by the business, and • For purposes of the payroll qualification an employee of a professional employer organization, as defined in s. 202.21 (5), or a professional employer group, as defined in s. 202.21 (4), who is performing services for a client is considered an employee solely of the client. • The value of real and tangible personal property owned or rented and used by the business in Wisconsin is equal to at least 50 percent of the value of all real and tangible personal property owned or rented and used by the business. Procedures An individual may subtract from federal adjusted gross income any amount of a long-term capital gain if the individual does all of the following: • Within 180 days after the sale of the asset that generated the gain, invests all of the long-term gain in a qualified Wisconsin business. Note A list of qualified Wisconsin businesses that have registered with the department is available at: https://www. revenue.wi.gov/Pages/Report/qualified-businesses.aspx. As required by sec. 73.03(69)(d), Wis. Stats., the registered businesses have provided information concerning property, payroll, and number of employees for purposes of registering as a qualified Wisconsin business. This information has not been reviewed for purposes of determining eligibility for the deferral under sec. 71.05(26), Wis. Stats. • Attaches a completed Schedule CG to the individual’s Wisconsin income tax return for the taxable year in which the deferral of gain is claimed. Specific Instructions Line 3 This is the amount of long-term capital gain that may be deferred if reinvested in a qualified Wisconsin business. Individuals claim the deferral of gain when completing Wisconsin Schedule WD. Line 4 The date on line 4 must be within 180 days of the date on line 1. If not within 180 days, you do not qualify for the deferral of gain. Line 5 Complete line 5 if the long-term gain was reinvested in a qualified Wisconsin business. Fill in the name of the business and the federal employer identification number (FEIN) of the business. Line 7 The basis of the investment is calculated by subtracting the deferred gain (line 7) from the amount of the investment in the qualified Wisconsin business (line 6). The reduced basis will result in a larger gain (or smaller loss) for Wisconsin than for federal purposes when the investment is sold or otherwise disposed of in the future. Note If you invested the deferred gain in a qualified Wisconsin business, held the investment for 5 years, and certain conditions are met, you may be able to exclude gain from the sale or disposition of the investment. The business must have been certified by WEDC or registered with the department for the year of the investment and for two of the subsequent four years. The gain that may be excluded does not include the amount of deferred gain. For further information, see Schedule QI, Sale of Investment in a Qualified Wisconsin Business.

About the Individual Income Tax
The IRS and most states collect a personal income tax, which is paid throughout the year via tax withholding or estimated income tax payments.
Most taxpayers are required to file a yearly income tax return in April to both the Internal Revenue Service and their state's revenue department, which will result in either a tax refund of excess withheld income or a tax payment if the withholding does not cover the taxpayer's entire liability. Every taxpayer's situation is different - please consult a CPA or licensed tax preparer to ensure that you are filing the correct tax forms!
