Sign-up for $100 child rebate to open May 15

Gov. Scott Walker says families will be able to sign up for a $100 per-child tax rebate starting on May 15.

Walker on Tuesday signed a bill into law that grants the tax rebate for children who were under 18 for all of 2017.

The new law also waives sales taxes on a variety of items. The bill originally limited the sales tax holiday to the first weekend in August, but Walker says he’s using his partial veto power to extend it from Aug. 1 through Aug. 5.

It will apply to pieces of clothing costing less than $75, a computer costing less than $750, computer supplies costing less than $250 and school supplies costing no more than $75 per item.

Walker says more details about how to apply for the $100 rebate will be coming.
