Lottery Credits

To qualify for a lottery credit you must have owned your home and it must have been your primary residence as of January 1, 2023.  If your home was newly built and completed after January 1, 2023, your tax bill does not qualify for a lottery credit in 2023.  Forms can be found by clicking here.  For more information regarding the Lottery Credit please see the Department of Revenue website.

 

First Dollar Credit

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.  For more information regarding the First Dollar Credit please see the Department of Revenue website.

 

The Wisconsin Department of Revenue (DOR) would like to provide the following information due to the increased number of inquiries related to property tax pre-payments.  Under state law (sec. 74.13, Wis. Stats.), general property taxes, special assessments, special charges and special taxes may be paid in advance of the levy during the period from August 1 until the third Monday in December each year.  Pre-payment of 2023 taxes may begin August 1, 2023.
