Lottery Credit

The lottery credit is a State property tax credit for people that own their primary residence. For example, property owners are eligible for a lottery credit in 2021 if they owned their primary residence and lived there on January 1, 2021. The credit for tax year 2021 ranges from $216 to $340 depending on the school district you live in. More details are available on the Wisconsin Department of Revenue FAQ page.

2021 LATE Lottery Credit (February 1, 2022 - October 1, 2022)

After January 31, if you did not receive the lottery credit for 2021 taxes (payable in 2022) and think you are eligible, you can still claim the credit from the Department of Revenue (DOR) until October 1. The DOR will send you a check for the lottery credit amount if you follow these steps:

  1. Check your tax bill to see if you received a lottery credit.
  2. If you do not have a copy of your 2021 property tax bill, you can get an electronic copy on AccessDane by following these instructions.
  3. If you did not get the 2021 lottery credit determine if you qualify by reading the explanation of the credit.
  4. If you qualify, fill out and print the LC 300 from the state lottery credit form site available from February-September.
  5. Email, fax, or mail the form with a copy of your tax bill to the Department of Revenue by October 1. The email address, fax number, and mailing address are listed on the form. Do not send the signed form to the County.
