State launches site for child tax rebate


People can start applying online tomorrow for a $100 per-child tax rebate.

The state is launching a website with information about eligibility, and how to submit a claim. People need to apply by July 2.

Governor Walker proposed the rebate, and it will return an estimated $122 million by September 1.

Republican Sen. Roger Roth of Appleton says people can get the money through direct deposit, or by check. He says registering is a very simple process.

Some Democrats believe the rebate, and a sales tax holiday in early August, are basically election-year bribes from Republicans.
