Lottery Tax Credit
To qualify for a Lottery Tax Credit you must own a home in Wisconsin AND occupy that home as your primary residence on January 1 of the year in which the tax is levied. If the credit was not applied and you feel you are entitled, please contact either the Village Clerk or County Treasurer's Office. More information on these credits can be found at www.revenue.wi.gov and type the name of the credit in the search engine.
First Dollar Credit
The First Dollar Credit is a property tax credit provided taxpayers under 2007 Wisconsin Act 20. The credit is calculated using the Equalized Value School Tax Rate and has a Maximum Credit Value, similar to the Lottery Credit. The credit is allowed on all real estate parcels that contain an improvement and one taxpayer may receive more than one First Dollar Credit. The credit is reflected on the line above the Lottery Tax Credit on your property tax bill and is divided equally between the two installments. If you do not see the Credit reflected on your tax bill and believe you are eligible, please contact either the Village Clerk or County Treasurer's Office.
