If you did not receive a Lottery and Gaming Credit on your tax bill and you are eligible (see requirements below), you have until January 31 to file an application with the City Treasurer’s Office. If your tax bill includes a Lottery and Gaming Credit and you do not qualify for the credit, you need to complete the Lottery and Gaming Credit Removal Request form and pay the additional amount due.
You must have been the owner of the property on January 1 of the year in which the property taxes are levied and you must have used the property as your Primary residence. Primary residence is where you live most of the time. You can only have one primary residence. The credit cannot be claimed on business property, rental properties, land or other properties that are not your primary residence.
If the home was purchased after January 1, the new owner must attest that to the best of his/her knowledge the former owner used the property as their primary residence as of January 1.
After January 31, a late credit may be claimed with the Wisconsin Department of Revenue prior to October 1.
If you are eligible for the credit and it is not on your tax bill, print the following form:
