Beginning April 1, 2020, retailers cannot collect the 0.1% baseball stadium sales and use tax. Wisconsin law recently changed to provide retailers and consumers certainty that the 0.1% baseball stadium sales and use tax ends in 2020 (2019 Wisconsin Act 28). 
 
Beginning April 1, 2020, the following sales and use tax rates apply to taxable sales and taxable purchases made in the five Wisconsin counties in the “baseball stadium district:”
 
•    Milwaukee – 5.5% (includes 0.5% county tax)
•    Ozaukee – 5.5% (includes 0.5% county tax)
•    Washington – 5.5% (includes 0.5% county tax)
•    Racine – 5.0%
•    Waukesha – 5.0%
 
For more information, see the online publication at revenue.wi.gov:
•    Transitional provisions which apply to the baseball stadium tax are found in Part 18.E. of Publication 201, Wisconsin Sales and Use Tax Information.
