To qualify for a lottery credit you must own your home and use it as your primary residence as of January 1, 2020. If your home was newly built and completed after January 1, 2020, your tax bill does not qualify for a credit in 2020.
Did you receive the lottery credit for your 2020 taxes?
If your current property was your primary residence as of January 1, 2020 you qualify for a lottery credit. This is a 191.25 credit that all Wisconsin property owners receive for their primary residence. You should see it in this section of your tax bill:
If you did not receive it, you can download a copy of the 2020 lottery credit form and submit it to the Village to receive the credit. A copy of the 2020 Lottery credit form can be found at: 2020 LC-100 Wisconsin Lottery and Gaming Credit Application Fill-In Form.
Every taxable parcel in the State of Wisconsin qualifies for the First Dollar Credit provided that parcel contains real property improvement. This includes business, commercial and private property. Unlike the Lottery and Gaming Credit, the property does NOT need to be the primary residence of the owner. This credit should be automatically applied to all qualifying properties. If the property tax bill has an amount shown in the "Ass'd Value Improvements" boxes, then that property should receive the credit.
