As we all know from experience, incessant phone calls can be a nuisance and cause needless interruptions. The Wisconsin No Call List has long been a way for individuals to reduce unwanted sales calls and texts by making it illegal for companies to call or text registered phone numbers for sales purposes. Legislation passed last session means the state’s No Call List is now being partnered with the Federal Trade Commission’s list, making it easier for citizens by only having to register on one list and not having to renew every two years.

Companies have 31 days after the date of registration to remove registered numbers from their advertising lists before it is considered illegal to call. If a sales call is received after 31 days of registration, complaints can be filed online or by calling 1-888-382-1222.
