Instructions for Request for Estimate of Withdrawal Tax for Managed Forest Land
General Information
You must file this completed form with the Department of Revenue (DOR) to receive an estimate of the tax liability amount due if the identified land is withdrawn from the Man-
aged Forest Land (MFL) designation prior to the original expiration date. You must file a separate form and pay a separate fee for each request. Only one Department of Natural
Resources (DNR) Order Number may be entered on a single request.
Landowners may withdraw lands in the following ways:
• An entire parcel of MFL land
• All MFL land within a quarter-quarter section, government lot, or fractional lot
• An entire MFL entry
• One to five whole acres for construction or small land sale
Section 1: Land Information
Enter:
• DNR Order Number for the parcel for which the request is being made in the top right corner of the form
• County name, TVC type (T = Town, V = Village, C = City) and municipal name where the land to be withdrawn is located
• Town number, range number, section number, legal description, parcel identification/number and the number of acres the estimate should be based on
Note: Most of this information can be obtained from the property deed, tax bill, and MFL documents. See example entry below.

Section 2: Owner Information
Return To Form
Enter owner’s name, daytime telephone number, email address, and mailing address
• Large property – check ‘Yes’ if the owner submitting the request has one or more parcels enrolled in the MFL and/or Forest Crop programs for a total of more than 1,000 acres
• Conversion – check ‘Yes’ if the parcel was converted from Forest Crop to MFL, and indicate the year of conversion
Section 3: Calculation of Fee for Estimate
Under sec. 77.88(5g), Wis. Stats., a fee must be paid to DOR before DOR will issue a withdrawal tax estimate. The fee equals the greater of $100 or $5 per acre (or partial acre).
To calculate the fee, the total number of acres (to the hundredth decimal) auto-fills from Section 1, and is multiplied by $5. The form automatically displays the correct fee amount
to include with your request.
Withdrawal Tax Estimate
The withdrawal tax calculation depends on the type of MFL order.
• Regular MFL orders – withdrawal tax equals the past tax liability for the number of years the land was enrolled or ten years, whichever is fewer
• Large property MFL orders – withdrawal tax equals the higher of (1) the past tax liability, less any acreage share payments made during the order period, or (2) 5 percent of
the average value of the standing timber, less any acreage share payments made during the order period
• Parcels recently converted from Forest Crop to MFL within the last ten years – withdrawal tax may be adjusted
