Lottery Credit

The lottery credit is a State property tax credit for people that own their primary residence. Property owners are eligible for a lottery credit in 2020 if they owned a primary residence and lived there on January 1, 2020. The credit for tax year 2020 ranges from $150 to $225 depending on the school district you live in.

Before January 31, 2021, to get the Lottery Credit for 2020 and future years, fill out the LC-100 from the state lottery credit form site and take it to your local municipal treasurer listed in the Official Dane County Directory.

2020 Late Lottery Credit (February 1, 2021 - October 1, 2021)

After January 31, if you did not receive the lottery credit for 2020 taxes (payable in 2021) 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 2020 property tax bill, you can get an electronic copy on AccessDane by following these instructions.
  3. If you did not get the 2020 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. Fax or mail the form with a copy of your tax bill to the Department of Revenue by October 1. The address is on the form. Do not send the signed form to the County.
  6. If you have any questions for DOR call (608) 266-0772.
