The state of Wisconsin requires that boxes 16 and 17 are completed on Form 1099-MISC. You may be charged $10 for each 1099 form that is missing information in boxes 16 and 17. Here's how to be compliant.

  • Your ID should be the abbreviation for Wisconsin (WI) and your 15 digit WI withholding ID - Example: WI 999999999999999
  • If you did not withhold state income tax and do not have any other requirement to have a Wisconsin withholding ID, then enter WI 036888888888801
