Lottery & Gaming Credit

First Dollar Credit

Lottery Credits

Lottery credit provides direct property tax relief to qualifying taxpayers in the form of a credit on their property tax bills. The credit is subtracted from the 1st installment.

If your property is located in one of the 8 multiple installment municipalities where the credit may exceed the 1st installment, the credit will continue to be applied until full credit is received. Once you have applied for and received the Lottery & Gaming Credit, you do not need to file another application until your primary residence changes.

Who Qualifies

You may claim lottery credit if on January 1 you are owner of the property and the property is your primary residence. You can have only one primary residence.
Rental or other properties do not qualify for the lottery claim.
A non-Wisconsin resident cannot claim this credit.
By definition, your primary residence is where you live most of the time. When you are temporarily away, it is the home to which you intend to return. You can have only one primary residence and you may only claim one credit. Property address and mailing address should match.

All lottery credit claims are audited by the State of Wisconsin. If the property does not qualify, the state will be contacting you to pay the credit plus interest and penalties back to them.

How To Apply

The completed form must then be returned to the Price County Treasurer by November 15th or submit with your property tax payment in January to the town, city, village treasurer at which time the municipal treasurer will subtract the amount of the Lottery Credit from the tax amount due. Do not apply if you did not own the property on January 1 of the tax year, or if the property was not your primary residence.
