So you are a resident of Wisconsin, but have taxable income in another state. No problem. You get credit for the taxes paid in the other sate. File your WI return with the non-resident state, say Minnesota, and attach a PDF file of the MN return and submit it to Wisconsin electronically. Problem solved.

No so fast sunshine. Wisconsin then requires you mail in as hard copy of the return to Madison you've sent in as a PDF!!!

Saves them the cost of printing of a hard copy of your pdf themselves to put in a filing cabinet somewhere.

I think it's some kind of backup system some people have.

Sounds pretty standard for a bunch of states.

I work for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. We were told that all of our log entry would be electronic, then was told that we would also hand write the information in a big paper book also.

That was over 12 years ago and we are only now starting to move away from the paper log. Still use it, but not for as much information.

Anyone remember the 'paperless' systems to which many
large companies were going to convert, 20-25 years ago ?

I guess it takes a different skill-set to hack into
a filing cabinet…

Did you fill in the 5 page Paperwork Reduction Act forms in triplicate? And get them notarized?
Hell's Bells, the instructions are there for anyone to see! Just write to the Department and ask for them!

I worked for a company that went paperless to reduce paper usage and costs. Everyone started making hard copies of ALL their emails. We ended up using more paper than we did before going paperless. Boss was not happy!

Yet another reason to be happy I live in a state with no income tax.* My only yearly paperwork headache is federal in origin.

*And now constitutionally prohibited, too.

Hmm me-thinks something nefarious is afoot…

most Government offices charge you a fee if you file or pay things on line..

and computers and printers have made the production of paper docs so easy most places are making a 1000 times more paper forms then they were making 25 years ago.

If you want to see mountains of paperwork, go work in a paperless office :-)
